Portland Northwest

Portland Northwest:  Northwest Portland is made up of several neighborhoods that are highly coveted by both locals and visitors alike.  Known for a large variety of mostly independent Portland businesses, especially in the NW 21st and NW 23rd (Nob Hill) area. 

Arlington Heights  Known for sweeping views of downtown Portland and Mt Hood.  This is an upscale urban neighborhood.

Forest Park  Named for the park that is both its crowning jewel and namesake; Forest Park. Almost 5,000 acres of lush forested area, popular for hiking, biking and equestrian trails.  This is the largest urban park in America.

Goose Hollow  Adjoining downtown Portland, Goose Hollow is more than conveniently.  Feels more like a city than a neighborhood is some spots and is famous for the "Kings Hill" area which has on its roster some of the oldest homes in Portland.

Hillside  An upscale, mostly residential, urban Portland neighborhood. 

Linnton  About five miles away from downtown Portland, Linnton feels like a sister city instead of a neighborhood. In many ways, Linnton has its own dynamic life force created entirely by the wide variety of folks who call Linnton home.

Northwest Heights  As the name would imply, this neighborhood peaks high above the city offering stunning views.  Upscale, old and new all in one- mostly residential.

NW 21st & 23rd Avenue - Nob Hill  Dozens of niche retail shops, wonderful dining options, coffeehouses, pubs and residential living space all combine to create an exiting, high energy area. 

Sylvan Highlands  Winding roads will lead you up, up, up and into a wonderful Portland neighborhood that feels very secluded from the rest.
