Sumner

In 1911 Harry Johnson Purchased a Lake, it became the hot spot of the Sumner Neighborhood for fishing, swimming, boat rentals and summer playing. Johnson Lake was fed by over 20 natural springs. Legend has it that it was so clear you could see the bottom and in shallow areas of the lake it appeared the water resembled bubbling fountains. This natural wonder drastically changed after the Vanport flood; once the water receded it left behind a murky lake. After years of different owners and questions about the mishandling of the lake natural environment the City of Portland purchased and protected Johnson Lake in 1997. This once hidden jewel is now an 8 acres natural habitat just ready for you to explore.

Though the north part of Sumner is known for its commercial and industry, the south features peaceful neighborhoods with cottages and mid-century ranch home styles.
