Diverse Neighborhoods and Vibrant Atmospheres

One of the most striking aspects of Southeast Portland is its remarkable diversity, both in terms of neighborhoods and atmospheres. You'll find a wide range of environments, from the bustling, industrial feel of the Central Eastside to the lively food-and-drink districts of Division/Clinton and Foster-Powell. Nature enthusiasts will revel in the tranquility of Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden and the recreational opportunities of Mt. Tabor Park.

Southeast Portland is synonymous with Portland's well-known attributes: it's hip, artsy, quirky, and a food lover's paradise. The neighborhoods here embody the city's lively spirit, with hotspots like the Hawthorne District, East Burnside Street, and the culturally rich Jade District. Yet, beyond the craft cocktails, food carts, and coffee shops, Southeast Portland offers something for everyone, including families seeking educational adventures at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) and the thrills of Oaks Amusement Park.

Southeast Portland History

It's crucial to acknowledge the complex history of Southeast Portland, a history that mirrors broader trends of displacement and injustice in the United States. This land was once home to indigenous tribes like the Tualatin Kalapuya, Molalla, and Clackamas, forcibly removed to make way for white settlers. The experiences of Japanese immigrants like the Shiogis during World War II serve as a stark reminder of the injustices endured by many.
