One of the most lovely neighborhoods on the Eastside, suburban Hazelwood is green and filled with well-kept contemporary houses on great lots. Situated on a slight rise, there are beautiful views of Mount Hood and Tabor from certain areas. With easy access to Interstate 205, major shopping centers, Clackamas Town Center and Mall 205 are just a quick drive away. Great schools and quiet streets combine to make Hazelwood a standout neighborhood in outer Portland.
Brentwood-Darlington borders Woodstock to the west, Mt. Scott-Arleta to the north, and Lents to the east. The homes are primarily working class and it is considered an emerging neighborhood.

Russell is a quiet, mostly single family neighborhood northeast of 122nd Ave and Halsey St. The area is becoming increasingly popular with new residents who are discovering the livability and sense of community in surrounding neighborhoods, such as Maywood Park and Argay.
Argay Terrace is a Northeast Portland subdivision primarily built in the 1960s. Consisting mainly of mid-century ranch homes, the neighborhood was designed to prevent high traffic streets, has a number of green walkways, a park, and is quite an attractive area. Close proximity to the I84 Freeway provides easy commuting into Portland or road trips through The Gorge.
Milwaukie lies largely in Clackamas County, right on the banks of the Willamette River. The “Dogwood City of the West” offers small town charm with easy access to big city amenities.

Although Milwaukie is small (just 4.85 sq. mi.), the appeal is large; beautiful views from the Willamette River Waterfront Park, access to water-sports, parks, biking trails and great schools. Milwaukie is a safe and clean community and is named as one of the 50 best places to raise a family.

A handful of restaurants and a cafes call this neighborhood home.
Cully is a culturally and economically diverse mix of commercial and residential development. The modest homes on large lots are an urban farmer’s dream.

Among residents, there is a strong sense of community identity and active local involvement to improve the quality and livability of the area.
