Early Portland included stump-filled land, good soil, and gulches filled with water runoff from the Tualatin Hills. These attracted a wide variety of workers, immigrants from many lands, and a wealthy merchant class that grew rich along with the city. This walk takes you from the once-depressed commercial area, newly attractive to today’s young entrepreneurs, to a working-class area known for its tannery and Chinese gardens, to the well- kept mansions overlooking the once-busy city. On the way you will also pass by one of Portland’s oldest sports fields, newly renovated into a major league soccer stadium.
