Woodlawn is a historic district located in Northeast Portland, Oregon. Woodlawn is a highly walkable community with businesses and a park as well as historic sites and buildings located along Dekum Street which transects the neighborhood from east to west. A triangular green on Dekum Street was once the site of a former train station. Restaurants, cafes, and local shops in the neighborhood are within walking distance for area residents.

Dog walkers experience relatively moderate weather conditions all year round. Summers are warm and dry, but not usually too hot or burdened by severe storms. Winters are cool and rainy but rarely stay below freezing for long and snow is uncommon. A warm rain jacket and good footwear are recommended for people walking their pets in the winter when precipitation is frequent and can result in icy conditions. Spring and fall have occasional showers but are warm and pleasant for walking.

Woodlawn is one of the oldest developed areas in the region and has many historic features and buildings. Homes in the area feature Queen Anne architecture and Craftsman style bungalows along with some newer houses and condominiums. The neighborhood has views of nearby Vancouver, Washington, although the neighborhood itself has limited elevation changes and is not difficult for pedestrians to walk around.  

The train track on the northern border and the international airport to the north do create some noise pollution in the community, but some urban residents enjoy the sights and sounds of the trains and planes. The north side of the neighborhood near the train tracks has commercial and industrial activity and is not as pleasant for walking as residential areas. Luckily, residential streets are heavily landscaped with lush greenery and shade trees. Most streets in the district also have sidewalks to create separate pedestrian paths for people and pups.
