Portage West is an amenity rich property with dock access to the Gorge Waterway, on-site card loaded laundry, a gym and a seasonal outdoor waterfront pool with outdoor bbq area and plenty of seating. Portage West is within walking distance to grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants and pubs and plenty of green space for kids.
