A town of rolling farmland, beautifully appointed estates, tree-lined boulevards and small areas of urban development, Wilsonville is the perfect suburb for young families, older couples and city-dwellers looking for that backcountry feel. Located in Clackamas and Washington Counties, the town was incorporated from the original hamlet of Boone’s Landing, from which Boones Ferry (one of the region’s longest and best-known streets) gets its name. Real estate in the area consists of single-family homes in more populated areas, ranch houses on large lots or with acreage, apartments, and condominiums. While Wilsonville is located along the I-5 corridor and is close to Portland, its close proximity to nature gives it a country feel.
Magness Memorial Tree Farm and Graham Oaks Nature Park are both within easy driving distance, containing hiking trails and scenery to enjoy. Wilsonville Memorial Park offers visitors 126 acres of paths, waterfront views, skateboarding areas and hangout spots. Wilsonville’s urban areas feature fountains, art and sculpture, shopping and amusement centers such as Bullwinkle’s. In the spring or summer, Wilsonville hosts an arts festival that showcases local artists young and old.
