Portsmouth Neighborhood – Your New Home

Portsmouth is an up and coming neighborhood in North Portland near University Park, and St. Johns. Since Portsmouth is so nearby these other neighborhoods, you will find that although there isn’t too much to do right inside of Portsmouth, you can find restaurants and shopping in nearby areas. You can find lots of shopping in the Jantzen Beach Shopping Center, and if you are looking for a New Seasons, there is one in nearby Arbor Lodge.
You can find really pretty old homes in Portsmouth, along with different modern styles as well. It is interesting to see that really expensive looking homes are often right across the street from places that look more run-down. Similarly, you will see a lot of different types of people living in Portsmouth. Due to the proximity to The University of Portland, you will see families, of course. However, there are also families and retired people living in this area as well. Since this is a transitional area, there is likely a lot of potential to make money on real estate in the future.
There are some very nice parks in Portsmouth including Portsmouth Park, McKenna Park and University Park. Northgate Park is also quite popular with the locals. Another positive aspect of this area is that it is great for bikers. You can pretty easily get to other areas in Portland just on your bike.
