South of downtown, between the Terwilliger Curves and the Willamette River. This neighborhood is convenient to those who work at OHSU (Oregon Health and Science University). There are 2 major roads that run through Johns Landing which makes it feel rather busy and non-relaxing.
The area is more of a transient area, not permanent residence. One needs to have a bike or car to get around here as well.
It is close to the river, recreation areas and restaurants.
