Maplewood Neighborhood – Your New Home

The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641

Maplewood, along Portland’s western edge, is known as a quiet residential neighborhood with a suburban or even rural feeling.

Residential streets are set along rolling hills, with lots of curves and dead ends giving this neighborhood a quiet and relaxed feeling. Within Maplewood itself, expect to see lots of suburban streets lined with homes, parks and schools. Maplewood is located within easy driving distance to downtown Portland.

The only commercial spaces in Maplewood are along the outer edge. Instead, the community’s main attractions are parks and the Maplewood Elementary School, which parents seem to love. April Hill park, a hidden gem, offers a playground, fields, and trails around Woods Creek. Several other small parks give Maplewood plenty of green spaces to be enjoyed by the public.

This established neighborhood has a family-friendly feel. Residents tend to be established professionals with kids. There are variety of housing styles, from historic to newer construction. Homes tend to be set back from the road on larger lots, giving neighbors plenty of space between each other, and some of the homes in the hills have picturesque views.
