The special feel of Alameda: views of Downtown, the Cascades and the Willamette, along with windy, hilly streets. There are no restaurants, cafes or shops in the immediate vicinity, the lots are too big.
Not to worry, there are incredible restaurants in bordering Concordia, great shops and Portland’s best doughnuts in nearby Rose City Park, and in Irvington, one can find wine bars and Italian cafes.
Within the neighborhood lies the excellent Alameda Elementary School. Nearby parks include Wilshire Park and Grant Park; the latter features the Beverly Cleary Sculpture Garden.
Alameda means, in Spanish, a promenade under the trees or an open walkway.
