Mill Park Neighborhood – Your New Home
The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641
Mill Park, in Southeast Portland, is named after a park of the same name. Mill Park has many open spaces with paths for running, biking, and walking, but don’t expect a lush green forest. It’s a great place to take the kids for an afternoon, or to get in your morning exercise. The Mill Park neighborhood is also home to several other parks – Mill City Park, Midland Park, Floyd Light City Park and North Powellhurst Park, giving families plenty to do here.
This family-friendly neighborhood also offers Mill Park Elementary and Floyd Light Middle School, which parents seem to rate highly. All of these amenities give Mill Park a family- and community-focused feeling. The East Portland Community Center is actually remarkably impressive too. In addition to what you would expect in the way of a fitness center, basketball court, and pool, it has a rock climbing wall and even an aquatic center with water slides. The center also offers a variety of appealing and diverse classes year-round. This is a major plus for this area!
This community has nice residential areas, while offering easy commutes to other parts of town, since it’s located near major thoroughfares. Mill Park has a strong sense of community with regular community meetings. Typical residents include families with kids and young couples. Mill Park offers a wide range of housing options, including modest houses and apartments, making it popular among first-time homebuyers or those who still rent, but want a little more space than they’d get in closer-in neighborhoods. With affordable housing and a quiet, laid-back feel, Mill Park feels like a good place to settle down.
