Maplewood is a small neighborhood with a unique layout; the street grid does not conform to Portland much due the topography. Maplewood’s has many knolls and rolling hills with two tributaries of Fanno Creek: Vermont Creek and Woods Creek. The land bordered by SW Multnomah Blvd., SW Canby, SW 51st, and SW Custer is constrained by the steep slopes, flooded areas, and wetlands of Woods Creek. In the creek corridors there are numerous underground springs. There are no through streets which pass over the creek drainages so there are few north to south connections from most of Maplewood’s streets to Multnomah Blvd. Likewise, there are only two ways to travel east to west and exit the neighborhood: Vermont Street and Maplewood Road.
Maplewood is almost exclusively a residential neighborhood with many green spaces, with its only commercial businesses along its outer edge.
