Thinking of moving to Lents?

Lents is an East Portland neighborhood with a nice mix of residential communities, while still being close to major roadways for plenty of access to shopping and other amenities and an easy commute.  The new TriMet Green line made this neighborhood even more accessible.  On the light rail, Lents is about 30-40 minute commute to downtown, and about 15 minutes to Clackamas Town Center. Neighborhood parks such as Lents and Glenwood are popular places for family and community activities.  Neighbors enjoy bike rides along I-205 MUP (known as  the Woody Guthrie Trail), and enjoy the harvest season at Zenger Farm.

The vibe

Family friendly. A great mix of suburban and urban areas, with easy access to shopping, dining, and public transportation.
