Linnton Neighborhood GuideLinnton is located in Northwest Portland between two of Portland's most beautiful places: Forest Park and Sauvie Island.
The small community of Linnton is located in Northwest Portland along a stretch of the Willamette River. With it's early roots as a former logging town and it's prime waterfront acreage, the neighborhood is struggling with the City of Portland over future Linnton waterfront development--either more industrial or residential/industrial mix. It's not clear yet who will win out, the residents or the City of Portland, but one thing is clear--Linnton has a strong sense of identity and community pride.
Nearby you'll find the lovely Forest Park. One of the most beautiful parks in the country, Forest Park offers miles of hiking trails through lush green woodland. This park truly personifies the Pacific Northwest. Starting at NW 29th Ave and Upshur and spanning all the way to Newberry Road, Forest Park sits smack dab in the middle of Portland, literally neighboring downtown Portland. Enjoy hours of foot, bike and equestrian trails all while relaxing in the intoxicating natural beauty. Forest Park is dog friendly- your four-legged friends will love it here!
