Southwest Portland extends from Burnside Street in the heart of downtown Portland, through the campus of Portland State University and up into the West Hills. In contrast to the flat, grid setup that comprises much of the east side of Portland, Southwest is nestled in the foothills of the city, offering gorgeous views of the city and surrounding areas. Even by Portland standards, Southwest has a lush variety of trees and wildlife littered throughout the area with over 100 miles of walkable trails and countless parks to enjoy. Barbur Boulevard and Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway are the main arteries that lead from downtown through much of the Southwest area. A variety of public and private schools, community centers, and businesses and much more all reside in the Southwest Portland area. To the south lies Lake Oswego and West Linn, while to the west is Beaverton, Tigard, and Aloha.
