Features of Crestwood Neighborhood
Like many of the neighborhoods in southwest Portland, Crestwood is a mix of dense urban and nature. Wooded in spots yet with close proximity to Multnomah Village and Portland, it’s a great place to call home. Whether you take I-5 or Barbur Blvd., downtown Portland is only 10 minutes away. This quiet neighborhood, also like many in Portland’s southwest, is graced with two large parks.
Crestwood Neighborhood Parks
Woods Memorial Natural Area
Within the boundaries of the park, you’ll find mostly native landscape including cedar, Douglas fir, oaks, Oregon grape, trillium, willow, and more, offering a quiet natural setting that draws wildlife in the meadow and along the creek, all of which you can experience by taking a walk on Marigold Trail.
