From young professionals to growing families, there’s something for everyone in Southwest Portland. The heart of Southwest is the growing city center with some of Portland’s most famous restaurants, museums and concert halls, including the Japanese Garden, Rose Test Garden, Washington Park and Oregon Zoo. For families looking for a little more peace and quiet, the south and west hills are occupied with single-family homes and breathtaking views of the city, and on clear days, Mt. Hood and Mt. St. Helens.
