Historic City Hall, Milwaukie, Oregon
W E L C O M E     T O

Small town charm, life on the waterfront, easy access to big city amenities - all of these describe the "City of Dogwoods". Located between historical Oregon City and Portland, on Highways 99E and 224 in Clackamas County, Milwaukie offers all that and more to visitors and residents. Named as one of the 50 best places to raise a family, Milwaukie provides a clean environment, good transportation, schools and health care, and many cultural opportunities.

Recreational excitement includes whitewater kayaking on the Clackamas River, or fishing, hiking or mountain biking in one of the more than 100 parks in Clackamas County. Access to the Willamette River waterfront is available via the Jefferson Street boat ramp and Elk Rock Island. Swim or try the climbing wall at the state-of-the-art North Clackamas Aquatics Park, which has a wave pool, lap and diving pools, kiddie pool and spa.

Whole grain flours, organic grains and delicious meals are the specialties of the house at Bob's Red Mill. Located at 5000 S.E. International Way in Milwaukie, the mill store offers natural grains ground on century-old French buhr millstones. Many specialty flours, whole grain foods and mixes are available for purchase in the mill store. Kids especially enjoy watching the water wheel turn, and tasting the breads and cookies from the restaurant inside.

Living in Milwaukie allows easy access to many exciting areas of Oregon. Being close to Portland, only minutes away, lets visitors enjoy all of the excitement of the big city. Portland offers shopping, sights, nightlife, arts and outings. Mt. Hood, just an hour away, has year-round snow skiing. The Pacific Ocean and all the Oregon coast has to offer is only two hours away, and the spectacular beauty and recreational opportunities of the Columbia Gorge is only a half hour away.
