Approximately two miles in length and a mile wide, the teardrop-shaped area is rich in natural and recreational amenities. We have four public parks (Westmoreland, Sellwood, Sellwood Riverfront & Johnson Creek), hiking paths (Oaks Bottom Refuge), a public golf course, a bicycle/pedestrian only thoroughfare (the Springwater Corridor) and the center of Portland's antiques shopping.
With a wide variety of shopping and dining choices, our two historic neighborhoods dating from 1876, make it easy to enjoy everything that Sellwood/Westmoreland has to offer.

Take your palate on an a journey of discovery every Friday with a blind tasting wine flight of 4 selected wines.
Tasting a wine blind forces the taster to concentrate on every tiny aspect of the wine. Since you may be struggling to pinpoint the style or origin of the wine you tend to try even harder to identify aromas, flavors or styles. This is a very good tool to use in honing your tasting skills.

The Sellwood Westmoreland Business Alliance is very proud to have one of the first informational kiosks in the city of Portland. Our kiosk is placed permanently at the key intersection of Milwaukie and Bybee on the NW corner.
This three-sided structure contains 3'X3' display cabinets on each side. One side of the kiosk has a map showing our SWBA members. The second panel displays the same map but with neighborhood resources and amenities (parks, walking trais, library, community center, etc...) And the three panel features upcoming neighborhood events. The goal is for this kiosk to become a focal point of the business district.
Funding for the kiosk has come from a city grant, a donation from S.M.I.L.E and the SWBA.
