Wandering Woodfords

Like much of Portland, Woodfords Corner is a neighborhood that mixes history and modernity. One of the long-standing regional hubs from its days as the location of Deering City Hall, Woodfords Corner continues to thrive and revive by mixing historic homes, cafes, shops and restaurants together at one of the busiest junctions just off the peninsula. Join us as we explore some of these standout landmarks and meet local business owners, as well as new friends and neighbors. Highlights include: Baxter Woods, businesses new and old, discussion of street art, notable developments, and a visit to a local bakery!


All sidewalks are accessible.
