Welcome to the Water!
Welcome to Bridgeton! Dating to the early 1900s, Bridgeton was once a thriving fishing and farming community. The Bridgeton neighborhood of today continues to be a unique and viable assortment of floating homes, condos, historic homes, and businesses.
Positioned upon the levee of the North Portland Harbor channel, in Portland, Oregon, Bridgeton feels like a removed beach village well within Portland city limits. The smallest of all Portland neighborhoods, with under 1,000 residents, Bridgeton may be Portland's best-kept secret. We welcome you to our friendly community, where neighbors wave to each other, and friends are made easily. Come experience Bridgeton Neighborhood.
