South Portland, Oregon

South Portland sits nicely along the Willamette River and stretches from downtown to the Sellwood Bridge. Our district covers three historic neighborhoods; John’s Landing, Liar Hill, and the South Waterfront. The South Portland Business Association works hard each year to make these neighborhoods a destination for all Portland citizens.

The area was orginally mostly industrial work zones, with the exception of Lair Hill. Up until recently the South Waterfront was still industrial zoned, and in 2006 the area officially became known as South Portland, whereas previously it was known as Corbett-Terwilliger-Lair Hill or CTLH. Today the neighborhood’s are lined with tall beautiful trees topped off with green lawns.
