The Northwest District is a densely populated retail and residential neighborhood in the Northwest section of Portland, Oregon. Craftsman- and Old Portland-style houses are packed tightly together with grand old apartment buildings and sleek new condominiums, within walking distance of restaurants, bars, and shops. The Portland Streetcar terminates here, connecting the district to the Pearl District and Downtown Portland.
Beyond the bustle of NW 21st and 23rd are peaceful residential districts and recreational areas such as Macleay Park (acquired 1897, in the Forest Park neighborhood) with its Wildwood Trail winding among trillium and ferns beneath giant Douglas Firs. Parks within the Northwest District include Couch Park (1977) and Wallace Park (1920). Northwest District Public schools include Chapman Elementary School and the Metropolitan Learning Center. Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital and Medical Center and Linfield College-Portland Campus  are located between NW 23rd and NW 22nd streets.
