Mt Tabor Neighborhood – Portland Oregon

Mt Tabor is a 600-foot butte in east Portland that was once an active volcano!
In fact, it is one of just two extinct volcanoes in the United States that is located within city borders!
The other one can be seen in Bend, Oregon.
Mt Tabor has been transformed into a lovely park with walking routes, picnic places, spectacular overlooks, sports fields, and woods.
To the west of this butte lie the Mt Tabor and South Tabor communities.
Mt Tabor Neighborhood is a 636-foot butte in east Portland that was once an active volcano!
In fact, it is one of just two extinct volcanoes in the United States that is located within city borders!
Bend, Oregon is the location of the other.
Mt Tabor has been transformed into a lovely park with walking routes, picnic places, spectacular overlooks, sports fields, and woods.
Just to the west of this butte are the Mt Tabor and South Tabor neighborhoods.
It is bordered on the north by Division, Stark, and Burnside, and on the south by Powell Blvd.
Thornbird and some of the other roads that lead up to it contain some spectacularly large homes—even mansions!
Bungalows, Craftsman, 1950s ranch style, and a lot of early 1970s homes may be seen in the region, in all price ranges and shapes.
Some are in need of repair, while others have been beautifully restored.
It’s a safe, family-friendly area that’s only 15 minutes from downtown!

Burnside to the north, Division to the south, SE 76th Ave to the east, and SE 49th Ave to the west define the boundaries.
It is bordered on the NE by Montavilla, the north by Center (North Tabor), the west by Richmond and Sunnyside, and the south by South Tabor.
In terms of pricing, Powell Blvd is a clear dividing line.
Your house is worth a lot more if you live north of Powell Blvd than if you live south of Powell.

Tabor Reservoir (Mt.)

The Friends of Mt Tabor website has a photo of the Mt Tabor Reservoir.

The residents of the Mt Tabor area have a lot to choose from.
The main attraction is Mt Tabor Park, which spans 196 acres and includes a forest, paths, sweeping views of downtown Portland and Mt Hood, picnic sites, and multiple reservoirs.
The National Register of Historic Places lists Mt Tabor Park and three of the reservoirs.
Another feature of this community that sets it apart is its proximity to Hawthorne Blvd, which runs all the way to the base of Mt Tabor.
Hawthorne is one of the most popular tourist destinations, with fashionable restaurants, boutiques, and pubs.
It also houses three of my favorite Portland establishments: Powells Bookstore, New Seasons Market, and Grand Central Bakery.
Massage therapists, acupuncturists, Naturopathic Doctors, and chiropractors are just a handful of the alternative medical practitioners available.

Mt Tabor Park was once a farm with a lot of fruit trees.
It was given to the city in the early 1900s to be utilized as a park.
More information on its history can be found in the history section below.

It’s stunning!

If you enjoy walking, hiking, or have a dog that you enjoy taking on long treks through the woods…
If you want to live in the city but also want to be close to nature, this is the place for you!
