Maplewood Neighborhood – Your New Home
The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641
Maplewood is a tranquil residential area tucked away along the western edge of Portland. Featuring winding roads and hidden alcoves, this neighborhood has an idyllic vibe that will make you feel right at home amongst its meandering streets lined with homes, parks and schools. Plus it’s conveniently close to downtown for when city life beckons!
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 neighborhood is the perfect home for established families who are looking to settle down and enjoy some peace and quiet. With a mix of classic charm from historical homes as well as modern construction, everyone can find something that suits them here. Not only does this family-friendly space offer plenty of breathing room between neighbors but breathtaking sights await those located in the hills!
