SOUTHWEST | SYLVAN-HIGHLANDS


About


Located on the west side of the West Hills, Sylvan-Highlands (PDF map), true to its name, offers a forested setting perched high on a hill. The neighborhood is more modest than the adjacent neighborhoods of Arlington Heights and Southwest Hills, and one can reasonably purchase a home with a wonderful view of the Cascade Range. Sylvan-Highlands offers seclusion and peace close to the city, with Northwest and Downtown only minutes away. Houses in the neighborhood are a mix of modest ranch and newly constructed contemporary homes. With its wooded hills and easy access to work and recreation areas, Sylvan-Highlands is a great place to live.

Library


For the second year in a row, Multnomah County Library is ranked number two in Hennen's American Public Library Ratings (HAPLR), which rates U.S. public libraries serving populations over 500,000.

Sylvan-Highlands is served by the Central branch ( 801 SW 10th Ave.) of the Multnomah County Library.
