More About Sylvan Highlands
Living in Sylvan Highlands
Just uphill from downtown Portland, at one of the highest spots in all of Portland sits the neighborhood Sylvan Highlands. Most of the homes in Sylvan Highlands were originally built in the 1930s but the neighborhood continues to grow with new homes, condos and townhomes. Sylvan Highlands is not considered to be a very walkable friendly neighborhood due to narrow roads and lack of sidewalks; however there are plenty of trails throughout that provide the residents an excellent way to get out and enjoy nature. Even though this community is so close to downtown Portland, it doesn't feel too much like the city because of the mature trees, winding streets, homes on big lots that are pretty secluded and private, some with valley or coastal views. Nearby the Oregon Zoo, Hoyt Arboretum, Portland Children's Museum, Japanese Gardens, Worlds Forestry Center and the Veterans Vietnam Memorial provide residents with plenty of activities. Sylvan Highlands neighborhood even includes the western part of Washington Park.
Although Sylvan Highlands is not considered a very walkable community, being near U.S. 26 makes commuting by car convenient.
