Pleasant Valley Neighborhood – Your New Home
The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641
East Portland’s Pleasant Valley is a quiet, family friendly neighborhood with well-kept homes tucked around amazing parks, making it ideal for parents looking for a spot to raise their kids with easy access to the outdoors. Pleasant Valley is really pretty much what the name might indicate… it is indeed pleasant. One great thing about this area is that it is near a lot of green space. In fact, Powell Butte Nature Park is just a short drive North. This park is huge at over 600 acres! It has many nature trails and stunning mountain views. It is great for those who love the outdoors including hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders. You can see a variety of interesting wildlife in this park as well including bats, rabbits, and coyotes.
Leach Botanical Garden and the Lakeside Gardens, two of the city’s most unique parks, are located within the Pleasant Valley neighborhood also. Both are amazing places to spend a quiet afternoon. On summer weekends, there are nearly always weddings happening at both locations, which offer picturesque backdrops for any special occasion. Pleasant Valley also has Springwater Corridor, part of the 40-mile loop for bikers and joggers, a very popular way to commute throughout Portland. There’s a Fred Meyer at the north end of the neighborhood, and a few scattered stores and services in the rest of the neighborhood. There is also easy access to major roads including I-205. Typical residents are professional couples in their 40s with kids. There is also a sizable population of retirees here.
