Just west of downtown Portland, historic Goose Hollow dates back to 1845, six years before Portland was incorporated. It was evidently named after a dispute in the 1870s regarding some neighbors’ free-ranging domestic geese. Today, this bustling yet homey neighborhood offers choice eats, drinks and entertainment, along with proximity to must-see spots, like Washington Park, Forest Park and Northwest 23rd Avenue.
