About Mt. Scott
Located in Southeast Portland, the Mt. Scott neighborhood was named after nearby Mt. Scott, which in turn was named for the late 1800s/early1900s editor of the Oregonian newspaper Harvey W. Scott (whose statue stands atop Mt. Tabor.) The surrounding neighborhood of Mt. Scott-Arleta features Old Portland, Foursquare, Tudor, Colonial, and Bungalow homes on mature tree-lined streets.
The central focus of the neighborhood is Mt. Scott Day Park, where 11 acres of paths wind you through large shade fir trees in this rejuvenating natural space, offering fun, exercise and community for local residents. The Day features an indoor basketball court, community center, playground, state of the art fitness equipment and weight room, old-fashioned roller rink, swimming pool complex, picnic area and indoor stage, as well as a softball field and tennis court, providing plenty of indoor and outdoor fun for everyone. Party and meeting rooms are also available for reservation. Both the Mt. Scott Community Center and Arleta SUN Community School offer a variety of enrichment programs to area residents.
Surrounded by larger shopping and dining areas, the small, charming neighborhood of Mt. Scott is characterized by its small boutiques, cafes, tea houses and its combination of family-friendly (try Food Network featured, Arleta-Library Bakery Café) and ethnic restaurants.
