When I think of SW Portland, I think of the neighborhoods of Hillsdale, Multnomah Village, Council Crest, Bridlemile, Markham, Burlingame, John's Landing, Lair Hill, Homestead and the SW Hills. Each of these close-in SW neighborhoods offers something special to its residents. John's Landing offers easy access to the Willamette River and Willamette Park, while Council Crest and Homestead, and Hillsdale provide residents with very easy access to downtown Portland and the many SW trails. Multnomah Village has a great shopping district, Gabriel Park and two wonderful community centers; the Multnomah Arts Center and the SW Community Center.
