Latest Collins View Homes
Collins View is not quite suburban, it is so close to downtown, yet it has a very tranquil feel to it being bordered by the Willamette river including the Powers Marine Park and Tryon Creek State Park, Marshall and Park. It has a modest commercial center at the intersection of Terwilliger and Taylor’s Ferry. It’s pretty hilly and has a largely rural feel once you get off Terwilliger. Collins View has four cemeteries, two of which are historic, within its boundaries. Eight-hundred-acre Tryon Creek State Natural Area, and another 200 acres of open space, are both mainly forest, and home to a wide variety of plants, birds and other wildlife. It’s got a fine private college (Lewis & Clark) and a fine law school (Lewis & Clark Law School), making it home to a number of students, faculty, and staff.
The Sellwood bridge can be crossed into SE Portland from this neighborhood.
