Crestwood is a small community located just off Interstate 5 in Southwest Portland Oregon. This small neighborhood is bordered by Multnomah and Ashcreek. This wooded area is a small urban wilderness frequented by elk from the surrounding forests. The Woods Memorial natural area is located in Crestwood as is the Dickinson City Park and Dickinson Woods.
Crestwood is easily accessible off of Highway 99 or Interstate 5 at exit 295 about 10 minutes south of downtown Portland. This makes a great location for those commuting to downtown Portland since it's an easy jump on the freeway and quick access to downtown, or, residents can go the back way up SW 45th Ave to Beaverton Hillsdale Highway.
Just across the freeway along Highway 99 are several shops and restaurants as well as Markham school and the Multnomah County Library. There are plenty of activities and events happening throughout the Crestwood neighborhood each year including movies at Dickinson Park and the National Night Out party which is held the first Tuesday in August. This begins at 6 PM and lasts until sunset and Ash Creek neighbors are welcome.
The Woods Memorial Park is located just east of Southwest 45th and is an exceptionally maintained area with a system of trails that traverse the park and wind around Woods Creek. These trails have been continuously improved with bridges, stairs and boardwalks, which has been a collaborative effort with volunteers and Friends of Woods Park as well as trail committees and Boy Scout groups. It's a great location to see local wildlife and get a sense of nature while strolling through some of the many trail systems in this part.
Dickinson Park is located at the southern end of the Crestwood neighborhood and also has a work party for second Saturday of every month at 9 AM to continue the beautification of this kid friendly park. There's playground equipment and green space perfect for a picnic or just letting the kids burn off some energy.
