With a foot in both Northeast and Southeast, Laurelhurst is one of Portland’s premier neighborhoods. Established right after the turn of the century, the winding, curved streets convey a feeling of neighborhood security and old world charm. The houses vary from charming bungalows to sizable brick mansions, and everything in between. The desired school district adds to the neighborhood draw.
Spanning over an impressionistic 33 acres, Laurelhurst Park is the focal point of the neighborhood, and also one of the most popular parks in the city. It features a pond, walking paths, sport courts, sprawling lawn and old-growth trees, and family play areas.
Conveniently located between Burnside Street, Glisan Street, and 39th Avenue, it’s a fast commute to almost anywhere in Portland, especially across the river.
