East County

East County


East Portland is Portland—more people live here than in any other district. It’s also easily Portland’s most diverse area. It’s home to the historic Gateway Business District, annual street fairs like the Ramona Street Fair in Lents, and the city’s largest, LEED-certified aquatic facility, housed inside the East Portland Community Center. There are also wildlife scenes to take in during hikes around the 12-acre Knott Park, Powell Butte Nature Park, and part of the Boring Lava Field. And, the east also boasts the jewel of the city’s urban farming community—the city-owned, nonprofit Zenger Farm, which has 10 acres of protected wetlands and another six dedicated to organic farming practices. Think of it as the city’s agrarian classroom for budding ecologists, where outdoor lessons focus on eating healthy, locally and sustainably.

Like other areas, home values range drastically in east Portland and so do the demographics.  Old homes, new homes, condos, and townhomes can all be found in this area and often times are more affordable than other areas of the city.
