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

Woods Memorial Natural Area comprises the uppermost northeast corner of Crestwood neighborhood. Almost 45 acres in size, it was gifted to Multnomah County by the Southwest Hills Kiwanis Club in 1950, specifying that the area be used as a park. The City of Portland acquired ownership in 1988.

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.

Dickinson Park and Woods

Dickinson Park and Woods is an ideal spot for adults and kids alike. Adults can enjoy lovely views on this 18-acre expanse while the kids play on a climbing structure made by Landscape Structures and have fun with the talk tubes. Note: The area is undeveloped, and there are no bathrooms at Dickinson. That aside, it’s a great place to wind down at the end of the day and watch the sun set.

Crestwood Neighborhood Vibe

Crestwood, sometimes considered an extension of Multnomah Village, has the same low-key urban feel found in other bordering southwest Portland neighborhoods complemented by expansive natural areas. Many of the residents here commute to nearby Portland, Hillsboro, or Beaverton for work and come home to enjoy the quiet.
