Goose Hollow obtained its unusual name from the days when geese would run free through the neighborhood. Today, the neighborhood is one of the most well preserved in the city and is also one of the most densely populated. The neighborhood has become known for its beautiful historic buildings and pedestrian friendliness. The walkability of Goose Hollow encourages a tight-knit, yet diverse community. Evidence of this can be seen in the local art contributions around neighborhood hubs such as the Goose Hollow streetcar stations and Civic Stadium. Located conveniently close to PSU and OHSU, it’s no wonder that this area is an attractive option for students.
