Historical, Traditional and Everywhere in Between - That's Multnomah
The neighborhood of Multnomah, also called the Multnomah Village, is located Southwest of downtown Portland just off Multnomah Blvd from Interstate 5. This beautiful and historical part of the city is only 5 minutes to downtown and offers dozens of shops, galleries, bistros and restaurants, a wine and brew pub, and the Multnomah Art Center. This diverse and eclectic part of town is often known as Portland's best-kept secret. With dozens of shops coupled with microbreweries, the Multnomah Village offers something for everyone within minutes of residential neighborhoods and apartment buildings.
Close to the downtown village area is several parks and recreation facilities. Custer Park and Gabriel Park are two of the more popular parks in the area but just outside the borders of this neighborhood are other parks such as the Stephens Creek Natural Area, Gabriel Community Garden and Orchard and the Jensen Natural Area. The Multnomah Arts Center is perfect for reserving family reunions and get-togethers and also provides playground equipment, a gymnasium with kitchen and meeting rooms, sports courts and a community center. This is just off Capitol Way and within walking distance to Starbucks, medical clinics, and schools.
Multnomah sponsors several annual events including Multnomah Days featuring breakfast for the neighborhoods, a parade, and a weekend long street fair. Enjoy live music all day long with events for the kids, a wine and beer garden, arts and crafts sales, the Kiwanis pancake breakfast and of course the "biggest little parade" in the community. In Gabriel Park, residents and visitors alike enjoy Qi Gong in the Park. This meditation movement helps to restore focus and health while bringing your body back into its natural balance. This is held by a local teacher on Saturday mornings.
