About Mt. Tabor
In the middle of one of Portland’s most celebrated neighborhoods, looming some six hundred feet up and garnering impressive views of Portland’s skyline and Mt. Hood, sits a volcano that people just can’t get enough of – that’s because Mt. Tabor residents know its secret (it’s extinct) and have helped make it one of the city’s most celebrated destinations for hiking, biking, picnicking or just enjoying.
Mt. Tabor neighborhood’s open, friendly demeanor (despite its landmark status), and its impressive array of homes doesn’t hurt its rankings either.Driving through the peaceful and impressively landscaped neighborhood, you’ll find well-maintained Queen Anne, English Cottage and Colonial Revival homes, as well as Arts and Crafts offerings (favorites like Craftsman, Bungalow and Foursquare), several historic mansions and a handful of modern, custom designed homes.
Along with its expansive views, Mt. Tabor Park (one of only two extinct volcanoes in the continental U.S. within a city’s boundaries) features 196 acres of acclaimed green space, an outdoor amphitheater, multi-use trails, ball courts, a playground, public art and several of the city’s largest water reservoirs.
At the east end of the bustling Hawthorne District, just minutes from downtown Portland and adjacent to the shops and eateries of both Division and Hawthorne, Mt. Tabor residents have plenty to do and see. This includes visiting nearby Warner Pacific College, the Annual Mt. Tabor Art Walk and the PDX Soapbox Derby – a much-loved summertime tradition.
