An emerging neighborhood business area, the Lower Portland District is found along Portland Avenue from I-5 to East 44th Street. Partnerships with the Puyallup Tribe are bringing Native American art to the district and the Portland Avenue Community Center and Park provide wonderful open space and recreational opportunities for Tacoma residents.
Located on lands that are the original home of the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, the Portland Avenue Business District celebrates its connections to the Tribe with Native American artwork and a welcoming spirit that reflects the Puyallup’s history and culture.
Conveniently located close to Downtown and the bustling Port of Tacoma, the Portland Avenue district features a small-business incubator, a local credit union, restaurants and several Tribal-related businesses.
