Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood


Mt. Scott-Arleta is a vibrant Portland neighborhood boasting an eclectic mix of young families and singles that enjoy the close-knit yet welcoming environment it has to offer. It’s bounded by SE Foster Road, 60th Avenue, 82nd Avenue and Duke to the South; within this community lies an energetic atmosphere for those in their 20s & 30s looking for something new!

It is fairly convenient and easily accessible, and home prices tend to be lower than what you would pay in other areas. Part of what makes Mount Scott so ideal for families is the Mt. Scott Community Center. This center has a unique swimming pool with a water slide, new exercise equipment and even a roller skating rink! The center also offers a variety of very attractive classes. Mt. Scott Park is 11 acres and is also a major perk for this area. The park has a large children’s playground, softball, picnic facilities and a pool. Rain or shine, take the kids here for an enjoyable day.

Mt. Scott is home to a number of locally-owned cafes, bakeries, bars, and other small businesses frequented by those who live in the neighborhood. These tend to be located on the outskirts of the neighborhood, particularly along 82nd Ave (the eastern boundary of Mt. Scott) and SE Foster Road (which is along the north side).

At the center of this neighborhood lies a tranquil park surrounded by charming, older homes. From suburban to urban vibes, there’s something for everyone in these streets lined with lush trees and affordable housing – an ideal spot nestled between Portland proper and its outlying areas!
