Northwest Heights Neighborhood Guide
The Northwest Heights is one of those neat-as-a-pin neighborhoods, a community whose residents are obviously tidy and house-proud. Even the sidewalks and curbs look well-scrubbed. These rolling hills afford excellent views; stand at a corner of NW Thompson and Pinnacle and you can see the valley spread out before you. There are several points within this area where you can do just that.
It's assured the mail carriers who deliver the post to this area have bulging calves, and if you ride a bicycle through these streets often enough, no one will doubt your stamina and your lung capacity. This is a perfect neighborhood in which to take your exercise, and the exertion is made easier by the views and by the houses by which you stride. Many architectural styles are on exhibit, and all of them are impressive and lovingly maintained.
Once you've explored the paved walks of Northwest Heights, Forest Park is only a very short distance to the east, where you may shed the pavement in favor of beautiful woodland trails.
Northwest Heights is like living in a forested city park. Beautiful homes offer stunning views and you'll feel secluded and set apart from the rest of Portland. 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!
