Neighborhood Vibe

Like most of the Southwest Portland neighborhoods, Far Southwest features more of a suburban feel than neighborhoods located closer into the city center.  The Southwest area of Portland features more mature trees, established neighborhoods with older homes in a variety of styles, and a comfortable family friendly feel.  There are several parks and nature areas in the Southwest hills, making it easy to get away from it all while still being in the city.
