WELCOME TO JOHNS LANDING
Nestled along the Willamette river's west bank between upscale Dunthorpe to the south, and Portland's South Waterfront District to the north. Mt Hood accentuates the easterly vistas and on a clear day, Mt Saint Helens can be seen in the distant northeast. Comfortable and walkable to pubs and restaurants, the neighborhood is a blend of classic Portland homes and riverfront condos. Johns Landing is centrally located and in easy reach of Portland's most desirable activities. The meandering riverwalk, shared by pedestrians and cyclists alike, connects Johns Landing to nature in a uniquely intimate way. On any given day, it's not unusual to see Great Blue Heron, kayakers and sailboats from Willamette Sailing Club racing the Portland Spirit.
Up for a hike? Johns Landing residents have ready access to some of the most beautiful urban hikes in the U.S.. Look no further than just across the Sellwood bridge to find an easy 2.3 mile hike through Oaks Bottom.
From our partners at The Urban Digest:
"The loop through Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge burrows you into Portland’s wild side. Start at Sellwood Park among blufftop picnickers, dogwalkers, and baseball games and descend the sloping woods into the refuge.
Skirt the tallgrass South Meadow (once a landfill), then head north along the toe of the bluff, through the shady, swampy woods edging the heron and goose playground of Wapato Marsh, which is noisily sloshed by carp in the springtime. Happy shrieks waft across the water from Oaks Park; nearer at hand, mallards and wood ducks mutter to themselves in the marsh channels. A swift shadow alerts you to a bald eagle, freshly launched off a giant cottonwood overhead.
As you pass along the monumental base of Wilhelm’s Portland Memorial Funeral Home, crane your neck to admire its gigantic mural of Oaks Bottom beasties, from great blue heron to muskrat, that’s so prominent to eastbound travelers over the Sellwood Bridge just south.
Hang a left at a fork in the trail and cut through an airy cottonwood grove to join the Springwater Corridor, which here shadows the railroad that cleaves the Oaks Bottom wetlands from the Willamette River. Kayakers and powerboat anglers ply the waters between the riverbanks and Hardtack Island as you stroll south on the Springwater blacktop, joggers and bicycles (politely) whizzing past you. Before long you’re coming full circle, strolling along the western edge of Wapato Marsh.
Hit the Springwater’s junction with Spokane Street, and your starting point of Sellwood Park’s close at hand—from which you’re perfectly poised to grab a coffee or a pint on the streets of Sellwood."
WHAT'S NEARBY: THE SOUTH WATERFRONT
Just north of Johns Landing is the South Waterfront District—Portland's newest urban neighborhood—is one of the most well-developed, located just south of the RiverPlace Marina. Lovely walking trails wind along the river, native gardens sprout between beautifully modern buildings, and eateries of all ilk have popped up throughout this new neighborhood. In early winter, you can check out the Portland Winter Light Festival, which spans the Tilikum Crossing and is held at both OMSI and Zidell Yards. Doggy parks, shopping and juice companies and more abound–in other words, everything you’d expect from a thriving Portland neighborhood. Portlanders wanting to get a feel for their changing city and visitors alike will benefit from a day trip to this burgeoning community and enjoy all it offers. Read more at The Urban Digest.
