St. Johns, Oregon
Incorporated in 1902, St. Johns is the walkable northern neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. Located on the peninsula formed by the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers, it has the atmosphere of a small town, family friendly with schools, jobs and services all readily available.
St. Johns offers a downtown shopping district with eclectic shops, artist community, restaurants representing a diversity of cultures, and the beautiful waterfront park under the soaring bridge.
The industrial areas along the rivers include cargo and shipping facilities and the Rivergate Industrial District. The most distinctive feature of our community is our famous bridge. Under this bridge is Cathedral Park, rated by BuzzFeed as one of the “22 of the Coolest Places to Get Married in America”. The St. Johns Bridge simply never takes a bad picture.
