Piedmont – A Place of Homes

By Sharon Bloudek, June 19, 2019

I just sold a new home in Piedmont. It’s a great neighborhood; historically an original suburb of Portland, but one that is considered very close to downtown today. Not only because of distance, but because of I-5 and light rail running alongside the neighborhood making access so easy. Recently, modern transportation and the popularity of the local Portland Community College led to a revitalization of its business center, but efforts were really driven by the strong community, reinforcing the motivation of the original founders in 1888 who labeled Piedmont “A Place of Homes”.

If you get a chance to visit, check out Piedmont’s green heart- the much-loved Peninsula Park on the southern end. It was Portland’s original Rose garden and had over three hundred thousand visitors in its first year of bloom in 1913! Now it has many amenities, such as a community center, playing fields and courts, picnic and reservable areas, and a great splash pad if you need to beat the heat this summer.

If you are interested in moving to this great neighborhood or need any info on any Portland neighborhood, give me a call at 503-701-1000.
