Overview

From the top of Rocky Butte in Joseph Hill Park, you'll have a gorgeous 360-degree view of the Columbia River and Gorge to the east, the Portland airport to the north, downtown Portland to the west and southeast Portland to the south. A grassy area with red cinder paths can be found in this park as well as hand carved stone walls and benches. These stone walls are a favorite spot for local climbers. Decorative lights resting on stone pedestals illuminate the park at night. This park is named after J.W. Hill (1856-1930), who managed the Bishop Grammar and Divinity School in 1878 and went on to establish the Hill Military Academy in 1901.
