Cathedral Park Neighborhood


Cathedral Park, located in North Portland, is deserving to be called the most beautiful park in Portland. Settled under the St. John’s Bridge, this park has a storybook past as it’s rumored that Lewis and Clark camped here when they arrived in Portland.

This neighborhood borders the Willamette River and this fact is another reason that this is a fascinating neighborhood. While there aren’t a lot of stores and restaurants right in Cathedral Park, you can find them nearby St. Johns. The two neighborhoods were actually once joined together.

Today, this neighborhood is home to a diverse community approximately a 15-minute car ride to Downtown Portland. Parts of the neighborhood are still in transition, but home styles are varied. Condos and apartment buildings are available here as well. Lots of small shops, as well as larger chain stores are here, and there are some restaurants, but be sure and check out the food carts that are here. You will find some of the best food Portland has to offer coming out of these mini kitchens. However, the main attraction is Cathedral Park and St. John’s Bridge. Outdoor attractions, from the Jazz Festival, and the Portland Pirate Festival are all popular and celebrate the beauty of this magnificent park.

Many new residents have moved into the area within the past decade. Many are the University of Portland students, although Cathedral Park is not just home to students. There are plenty of young families and old-timers here too.
