This neighborhood doesn't get any better! Great schools, you have the water front, parks, great restaurants, coffee shops and stores all within walking distance. One of the best things about this very walkable neighborhood is how incredibly friendly, safe and clean it is!

Charming and friendly. Walk to shops, movie theater, parks, swimming pool, fantastic restaurants. Join your neighbors for the annual Halloween parade (Monster March) or milk carton boat races at the casting pond. So much fun to be had in Sellwood...just don't expect a walk-in closet; most homes built in the 20's.
Everything you need is available within walking distance or a short drive. The neighborhood is safe and well kept, and people a friendly. There's a dog park and a nature preserve with walking trails, lots of restaurants and hang out places, and t's right along the Willamette river.
