Reviews for Council Crest Park

Council Crest Park

A lovely, winding ride up the West Hills culminates with vistas that are breathtaking. Once you're up there, you might as well unfurl a blanket and soak up the sun and a book book or venture down one of the hiking trails and enjoy this beauty of a park. A dog park can also be found at the top so bring your furry friend for the ride as well.


Once home to an amusement park (1907-1929), today Council Crest boasts panoramic vistas, hiking trails, and picnic areas. While the streetcar line bringing visitors to the hilltop and the wooden roller coaster are now gone, the stunning view of Mount St. Helens remains.

This scenic spot is one of the highest spots in Portland and it offers stunning views. – In Short
More than 1,000 feet above sea level, on one of the highest points in Portland, this park offers spectacular views of downtown to the east, and sprawling suburbia and the Willamette Valley to the south and west. A long road winds through the elegant West Hills and leads to the park, crowned with a 77-foot water tower that used to be a wooden observatory at the Council Crest Amusement Park.

We love the Crest! – I 1st stumbled on this park by making a wrong turn 5 years ago when I moved to Portland. It quickly became a fave spot for my boyfriend and I to stroll and enjoy the beauty of this great city and the surrounding mountains. I take all of my out-of-town visitors to the Crest to do some impressing! Great spot!!!
