Southwest Portland stretches from North to South, following the banks of the Willamette River and an imaginary 65th Ave. It encompasses downtown Portland south of Burnside, as well as Beaverton, Tigard and Lake Oswego. The city has included some of these neighborhoods in its NW Neighborhood Coalition, so they are often considered part of both SW and NW Portland.
This area is incredibly diverse, offering something for everyone. From the Ross Island Bridge to the Sellwood Bridge you will find a range of different neighborhoods with their own unique characteristics. Whether it is enjoying views from a riverside park or exploring one-of-a-kind shops in vibrant downtown… there is something special waiting for you in Southwest Portland!
If you’re looking for a more suburban lifestyle, the southwest side of Portland could be just the place for you. From Multnomah Village to Hillsdale and Burlingame, there are plenty of neighborhoods with great schools, local downtown areas to explore by foot, and easy commutes into Portland. Plus, these neighborhoods feature winding hilly streets with no sidewalks, lots of trees and big yards – perfect for those who want a little extra breathing room! Washington Park and Tryon Creek State Park offer even more outdoor activities to enjoy nearby. So if you’re looking for something different from the east side of Portland but still want to remain connected to city life, look no further than the southwest suburbs!
