About Oregon City
Oregon City sits at the confluence of the Willamette and Clackamas Rivers in the southeastern Portland Metropolitan Area. It is about 13 miles from Downtown Portland, about a 25-minute drive in light traffic.
Oregon City was once the western frontier of America, the terminus of the Oregon Trail at the site of Willamette Falls. The horseshoe-shaped falls are 1,500 feet wide, and 40 feet tall with a paper mill adjoined. The site was important long before industrialization. It was invaluable to Native Americans as a hunting and fishing ground. Later, European fur traders claimed the land in 1829, and the city incorporated in 1843. Today, the view of Willamette Falls draws many tourists from all over the region.
The unique topography of Oregon City includes three terraces that rise above the river, creating an elevation range from about 50 feet above sea level at the riverbank to more than 250 feet above sea level on the upper terrace. The lowest terrace, on which the earliest development occurred, is only two blocks or three streets wide but stretches northward from the falls for several blocks. Those wandering around Railroad Avenue, at the Base of Singer Creek Falls, might come across "Moontrap" by local sculptor Lee Kelly.
Oregon City still has a small-town vibe with looks that match its blue-collar heritage. The population is roughly 35,000, enough people to support its thriving downtown business district, which is home to many charming retail stores, cafes, and restaurants. In recent years, Oregon City has gone through a significant renovation. It is now a city that has a mix of modern and historic charm. The investment drew new businesses like craft breweries and pubs.
Folks who enjoy the outdoors can take advantage of local activities like fishing, kayaking, motor boating, and many more. At the junction of Willamette and Clackamas River, many fishing boats arrive in hopes of hooking a salmon, steelhead, sturgeon, or catfish. From time to time, sea lions get in on fishing action and hang out on river bank docks.
