Oregon City Oregon Real Estate
by Rob Levy
Originally a destination for thousands of Oregon Trail pioneer settlers, today Oregon City boasts being a progressive community blending the old and new into a vibrant place to live, work, and play. The first U.S. incorporated city west of the Rockies, Oregon City is the county seat for Clackamas County. When you stop by, be sure to visit Willamette Falls, which has the first multi-lift navigational locks in the United States and is a national historical site. Oregon City can be reached via I-205 and neighbors West Linn and Gladstone.
Parks and Recreation
Oregon City has a good mix of both parks and museums for visitors and residents to visit. Clackamette Park is one of the larger parks which offers access to the river, overnight camping and other recreational facilities. Some of the museums that might be of interest are the McLoughlin House, the Ermatinger House, the Stevens Crawford Museum and the Museum of the Oregon Territory. If you are wanting to play a round of golf, the Oregon City Golf Course is on the southeast part of town off of Beavercreek road.
Schools, Health, Transportation
The Oregon City school District is made up of 10 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and a high school. The Oregon City High School has the 3rd largest student body in the state and is often a national power in girls’ basketball. The Clackamas Community College also is located in Oregon City.
