Laurelhurst

The Laurelhurst neighborhood straddles the northeast and southeast quadrants of Portland, and it is one of the most beautiful residential areas in the city. Named for the park in the center of it, Laurelhurst’s entrance is adorned by stone markers and is where you will find some of Portland’s most beautiful homes. Laurelhurst park itself is Portland’s largest neighborhood park, with more than 31 acres of ponds, walking trails, sport courts, picnic sites and public art. Not to mention hundreds of mature trees that provide cool shade in the summer and protection from the rain in the wetter months. Tree-lined streets showcase homes ranging from Tudors and Craftsman, to Colonials and brick cottages. Residents of Laurelhurst show great pride of ownership—you’ll find some of the best cared for homes and gardens in the city here. Laurelhurst is home to Music Millennium, a Portland institution. There used to be two of these record store locations—one here and one in Northwest—but the Laurelhurst store is now the only one and it’s a favorite weekend spot for music lovers of all kinds. The Laurelhurst theater and pub is a beautiful and historic theater that shows a wide variety of movies, and it was one of the first to let you enjoy a movie with a beer and pizza in hand. Each fall, the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral hosts the weekend-long Greek festival, a family event that includes performances, cooking demonstrations, a shopping bazar and children’s activities. Laurelhurst is also home to the All Saints Holiday Bazar and Portland nursery, a beacon for gardening lovers from throughout the city. If you’d like to learn more about Laurelhurst, let us know.
