The Powellhurst / Gilbert neighborhood is in East Portland south of Mount Tabor. Due to the fact that it is right off both Division Street and Powell Street it provides easy access into SE Portland and also to downtown. It is easy to commute from this part of town. This area has some decent parks including Gilbert Heights, which is almost 4 acres and Raymond Park, which is almost 6 acres. Raymond Park, in particular, has good facilities for kids.
This neighborhood is quite diverse, unlike many Portland neighborhoods. This means that you will see not only different races, but also various ethnicities. The community spirit in Powellhurst / Gilbert is very strong, much stronger than in other surrounding communities. Most residents seem to be families with young kids who enjoy the area’s nice schools and parks.
Bordering the east edge of the neighborhood is Powell Butte Nature Park, a great place for an afternoon stroll. There are also several smaller parks contained within the neighborhood itself. Most of the homes are modest but well-kept, single story homes lining wide streets. Though there aren’t any sidewalks, you’re likely to see kids playing or riding their bikes, as many of Powellhurst-Gilbert’s neighborhood roads don’t see too much traffic.
