Beneath a canopy of century-old trees in southeast Portland, Eastmoreland has the feel of an exclusive East Coast neighborhood. Large English Tudor and Colonial-style homes are set back from the street with expansive lawns and beautifully manicured gardens.
Nearly half of the neighborhood’s boundaries are edged with lush green space, adding to the feeling of seclusion among the trees. The historic Eastmoreland Golf Course forms the neighborhood’s western boundary. Built in 1917, the golf course is Portland’s oldest, and it’s an idyllic place to lose balls along its many ravines, streams, and lakes. In the neighborhood’s northwest corner, the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden features more than 2,500 rhododendrons, azaleas, and other flora. Charming pathways wind past waterfalls and alongside Crystal Springs Lake. You can settle in on a bench by the lake to enjoy one of Portland’s best birding spots, with nearly a hundred different species including great blue herons, mallards, wood ducks and more.
Reed College forms Eastmoreland’s northern border. This beautiful, liberal arts college was established in 1908 and features attractions of its own. You can wander the trails lining a forested canyon running through the center of campus, peruse the exhibits at Cooley Art Gallery, or take in a performance of the Portland Baroque Orchestra. Reed’s public events calendar is brimming with a wide range of lectures, performing arts, and other community events.
While Eastmoreland is almost exclusively a residential neighborhood, the location affords easy access to shopping and dining. Directly to the east, the Woodstock District has a college-town vibe and is packed with an eclectic mix of shops, cafés, coffee houses, a library, and grocery stores. To west, Sellwood/Moreland offers up even more shopping and dining along with a movie theater, a wildlife refuge, and a vintage amusement park along the river.
Most of the homes in Eastmoreland were built in the early 20th century and feature classic Tudor and Colonial styles. You’ll also find a handful of more modern developments along the eastern edge of the neighborhood.
