Located on the great Columbia River, Hayden Island is the only populated island within the Portland city limits. Historically, this community was serviced by ferries, transporting tourists from the mainland to the island’s beaches and magnificent amusement parks. Today, residents take advantage of the I-5 bridge and the outstanding transit system for an easy commute to downtown Portland and Vancouver, Washington.
A water lover’s paradise, people are discovering the convenient and peaceful lifestyle that can be found in this tight-knit community. Neighbors are often seen sharing a glass of wine as the sun sets or gathering for barbeques on their riverfront decks. With stunning river and mountain views and riverfront access, residents respect their environment and are heavily involved in sustaining their surroundings.
Hayden Island features pristine floating home communities and contemporary riverfront estates, in addition to manufactured homes in quiet parks and a wealth of upscale condos and executive housing options. A superb infrastructure fully supports the island’s well-planned growth.
Hayden Island is within walking distance to shopping, dining and recreation. The Jantzen Beach Shopping Center combines top national retailers with local and one-of-a-kind merchants. The island is just minutes from downtown Portland, close to the airport and the Max Light Rail runs nearby, making it a very convenient location.
Boating, kayaking, canoeing and fishing are activities residents are able to enjoy right in their own backyards.
