About Northwest Heights
Luxurious homes, commanding views, and exquisite sunsets define the prestigious Northwest Heights neighborhood. Perched above Forest Park in Portland’s northwest hills, the neighborhood feels as though it’s a world away from the city, but it’s just seven miles by car to downtown.
Having Forest Park in your backyard in one of the neighborhood’s greatest assets. At 5,200 acres, Forest Park is one of the largest urban forests in the U.S. and offers an authentic Northwest wilderness experience without ever leaving the city limits. You could easily spend a lifetime exploring the park’s 80 miles of trails on foot, on a bike, or on horseback.
Seven miles of private neighborhood trails run through common green space areas between homes and connect residents with the vast Forest Park trail system as well as the neighborhood’s private park, Mill Pond Park. In the summer months, you can join your neighbors for summer concerts at the amphitheater or relax by the pond to watch for birds and other wildlife. The park includes expansive lawns, a large playground, and picnic areas.
Northwest Heights is almost exclusively a residential neighborhood, but you’ll find a small pocket of businesses at the Forest Heights Village Center. You can get your caffeine fix at Starbucks, pick up the dry cleaning, and indulge in a foot massage and pedicure at the nail salon. A local pizzeria chain, Pizzicato serves up delicious pies with a gourmet spin. Many more restaurants and stores are just minutes away.
The quiet, residential streets of Northwest Heights have the feel of a private community with grand homes in a park-like setting. Many of the homes are new construction, built in styles ranging from traditional to modern. You’ll also find newer condo developments along the main corridors and a sprinkling of 20th century homes from different decades scattered among the neighborhood’s forested slopes.
