"A Good Place To Live If You Want To Be Away From It All"

Located near Portland International Airport, Woodland Park is strictly a residential neighborhood. Looking for schools? Shops? Businesses? Parks? Nope. You won’t find them. Which for some, is a plus, however, because Woodland Park is the smallest community in all of Portland’s neighborhoods, apparently most would prefer some local conveniences.

But if homes are all you are after, then you have come to the right place. Neighborhoods here are diverse and you will find a variety of home styles reasonably priced and many are well spread out. This seems to be a popular area for retired people or others that prefer to stay to themselves. Homes are average with some nicer than others. Shopping in neighboring towns is an easy drive, but again, cars are necessary if you live here.
  • Affordable homes
  • Quiet residential streets
  • Higher crime rate
  • No parks, schools, or businesses

"Tiny Residential Neighborhood in NE Portland"

Woodland Park is a tiny neighborhood between I84 and NE 102nd Ave, just north of NE Halsey Street, in Northeast Portland. All you'll find here are homes – there are no parks, schools, or businesses of any kind, which is the most significant drawback of living here, though there are plenty of amenities in neighboring communities.

There's a hospital just across 102nd, and a few restaurants and grocery stores on the other side of Halsey, but it's only truly walkable if you live on the outskirts of the neighborhood, where you'd have a short walk to bus stops and businesses. It seems like most residents are ready to hop in their car even just for a quick trip to the nearby grocery store.

Although statistically this section of the city has a bit higher crime than elsewhere, Woodland Park itself seems very insulated, especially once you start driving down the residential streets in the interior of the neighborhood. These streets really have a 'neighborhood' feel to them.

Homes here are set off a few winding roads. They tend to be older, and some appear more well kept than others. Home to just a few dozen houses, this is one of Portland's smallest neighborhoods. Houses are affordable here, and tend to be occupied by families. It seems like families tend to move here and stay for quite a few years.
  • Quiet residential streets
  • Affordable homes
  • Seems insulated from outside world
  • No parks, schools, or businesses
  • Higher crime rate
  • Some homes look older, not well kept
