The highest elevation in Portland is the neighborhood of Council Crest and the Council Crest Park at over 1000 feet above sea level.

West Hills Community Amenities
Portland's West Hills neighborhood, also sometimes referred to as Southwest Hills, is a distinct, major neighborhood with several micro-neighborhoods in the master-planned community. Some of the best reasons to live in West Hills include its beautiful surroundings and homes and easy access to downtown Portland.
Other neighborhoods such as Arlington Heights, Bridlemile, Council Crest, Forest Heights, Kings Heights, Portland Heights, and the Sylvan Highlands are all part of the master-planned community of West Hills. Nestled in Southwest Portland, this region contains upscale homes, larger lots, single-family properties, and a few condominiums. Set just over the Tualatin Mountains from downtown Portland, West Hills offers serene winding roads through forests and beautiful homes perched on the hillside.
Living in this area means you are in the heart of one of the most forested neighborhoods in all of Portland, yet no more than 5 to 10 minutes from downtown. It makes an excellent location for those that are looking for beautiful views and mature landscaping, yet an easy and quick commute to downtown. This hilly terrain and lush nature parks offer stunning views from most homes, and the area itself is full of history and connections to Portland's past. One of the most notable homes is the 1918 Frank J Cobb's House, an architectural masterpiece touted as one of the most luxurious estates you can find in Portland.
The neighborhood is primarily residential with upscale homes and estates but surrounding the area are multiple shops, restaurants, and markets. On the edge of West Hills is the popular Vista Spring Café, a landmark in the community for over 20 years. Whether you're stopping in for a warm cup of tomato soup and custom grilled cheese sandwich or grabbing a pizza on your way home from work, the café has provided years of faithful service to residents of West Hills.
Council Crest Park is probably one of the most notable landmarks in West Hills. At the top of the Council Crest neighborhood, you'll have some of the best views in all of Portland, and some say in the entire state. It was once an amusement park back in the early 1900s, named after the belief that local Native Americans used to hold meetings at the top of the ridge. At one point, it was called the "Dreamland of the Northwest," but it was closed in 1929, and the Lewis and Clark Observatory and park were created. Today, this park is a popular site for tourists and locals alike, not only for the amazing views but for the trails that venture down into Marquam Nature Park.
West Hills Schools
Residents of Portland's West Hills are part of the Portland public school system and are typically assigned to Rieke Elementary School, Gray Middle School, and Wilson High School. All of these schools are approximately one to two miles from most homes in West Hills.
