In the center of Hillsdale and the surrounding streets residents can find an increasing number of restaurants with varying cuisines, from Italian to Thai to brew pubs and more, and many take pride in using locally sourced ingredients. In Hillsdale you will find that there are plenty of places to grab a refreshing drink and lounge in the Portland summer sun, or cozy spaces to appreciate the rainier days of winter.

During the summer there are many activities and weekly events held that make Hillsdale a neighborhood with a strong community feel. Every Sunday during the summer and twice monthly throughout the winter there is the Hillsdale Farmers’ Market where local fresh produce and food items are sold, along with other goods and food stalls that offer wonderful snacks. The Farmers’ Market is a place where residents wander through the stalls, meet with neighbors, and experience the flavors that the Pacific Northwest provides. Living in Portland means appreciating summer while it’s here and Hillsdale provides many attractions where the community takes advantage of the weather. The outdoor pool at Wilson High School is a stalwart summer destination for residents. It has two large pools and provides many activities for all ages including swimming lessons, a large slide, and a lap pool. The pool is not the only place to cool off; there are also walking trails through the forested George Himes Park where walkers will find a reprieve from urban life close to home.

Hillsdale delivers access to a great school district within Portland Public schools with Reike Elementary, Gray Middle School, and Wilson High School, all located close to the center of the neighborhood. Hillsdale is a vibrant neighborhood within Portland with a smaller community feel, with many amenities nearby, while still part of a large city and is often compared to many East Side neighborhoods. It is close to downtown but separate from it in a way that has encouraged many families to make Hillsdale their home
