In 1901 a Catholic university had settled on the bluff, and today the University of Portland continues to be a mainstay of the University Park neighborhood.
Although it is squeezed between the bluff above the Willamette River and busy Lombard Street, University Park is rich in green spaces. Neighborhood parks, such as Portsmouth and McKenna parks, offer shade and places for children to play.
The Interstate light-rail line, about two miles east of University Park, serves the area, and the Adidas corporation has expanded on North Interstate Avenue, bringing with it employees who need housing.
The Lombard business strip is a pleasant mix of old and new.
