Ardenwald-Johnson Creek

Nature, Nature, nature…With a large amount of greenery with the Tideman Johnson Natural area, homes typically sit back from street with more land than inner SE homes.

Considered by many a more affordable bedroom community of Sellwood and Eastmoreland as it touches the borders for both neighborhoods and straddles Portland and Milwaukie.

Close to Milwaukie’s downtown it offers the amenities of a sweet core of businesses including Farmer’s Market, wine bar, tasty restaurant spots and a beloved bowling alley!

The Springwater Corridor Trail crosses the north side of Ardenwald and has two access points to enter the 21-mile bike and running path between Portland and Boring, Oregon.

Some find the proximity to Portland a huge draw, especially if you land on the Milwaukie side of this neighborhood for lower property taxes.
