Portland locations on Grimm Ep 209: La Llorona

Grimm Episode 209: "La Llorona"

"A series of horrifying child abductions make their way to Portland."
Aired Oct 26, 9/8C

Portland Actors

A bunch of local Portland actors, 15 at least, appeared in this week's episode.  See Cast Iron Studios casting website for photos.

St. John's Bridge

St. John's Bridge on
This was a bridge episode. NBC Grimm loves the St. Johns Bridge! (See episodes 5 and 9.)

This was also the most horrifying opening scene yet...and possibly the scariest episode. A boy is abducted at Cathedral Park, under the St. John's Bridge. (By the way, do people actually kayak here as portrayed in the show?)

Library Awards Dinner

Governor Hotel - The scene of the Grimm Portland Police Department awards event, the Library Room is also a popular wedding reception locale.

Another side note: Taking off to the scene of the crime, the cops referred to a random address "55 Adam & Millpark".

Side note: This is about 5 miles from Zell's, not exactly walking distance, but we can give them a little creative license on this one.

The filming at April's house took place in mid-August, apparently on one of the hottest days of the year in Portland.

Gas Station & 

Start Me Up Cafe

I suspected this scene took place at the Start Me Up Cafe in Banks, OR, per a little bit of Google Maps research. It appears to be validated by Kristi at OregonLive and her weekly Grimm recap.

Foster Home

This scene also took place on NE Cleveland, just up the street from the filming location for April's house.
