  • Stunning views of the city in an easily accessible setting. Great place to visit in Portland. Kids love to roll down the lawns.  more »

  • It is really kinda just a green space with a stellar view of Portland and the west hills. Worth the drive the houses in that area are architectural gems. There is an off leash area for your dogs and a...  more »

  • a pretty good historical location. on good days you can see the mountains. i'd recommend coming here on days with clear skies. when it's rainy, you can't see much
  • Nice place for a walk high above the west hills. Even better for a challenging bike ride through if you are up for some fun climbs up winding neighborhood roads.
  • I wanna say best views in Portland? if not for certain, very close.
  • One a clear day you can see Mt Hood, Mt Adams, Mt St Helens and part of Mt Rainer (behind Mt St Helens). You can't see downtown Portland very well, though. Easy to get to.
  • Best view in Portland. A park atop the highest point in the city, Council Crest overlooks downtown and out to several mountain peaks in the distance. The park is incredibly well maintained and has a great lawn, an off-leash dog area and some beautiful flowers. Drive up to the top for a quick trip, or hike from the Zoo or Marquam Park and earn your view.
