St. Johns

All About St. Johns

Why does St. Johns feel like a small town, hidden in Portland's urban landscape? At one point, it was completely independent—a fully self sufficient, tiny city. And even though St. Johns was annexed by Portland in 1915, it is still just as friendly and close-knit; it’s a great place to call home.

This gorgeous, thriving neighborhood is a melting pot for Portland residents, many of whom come from families that have lived in the area for four or more generations. Located at the tip of the peninsula of North Portland, St. Johns offers gorgeous views of the St. Johns Bridge, the Columbia River, and the Willamette River.

Residents enjoy watching bald eagles, salmon, and other wildlife in adjacent natural areas like Willamette Cove, Sauvie Island, Kelley Point Park, and the Smith and Bybee Wetlands. Both close to nature and to nearby Portland, St. Johns is the best of both worlds—a perfect slice of everything Portland has to offer.
