Oregon City is located to the south of Portland and is substantially sized with its population of 30,000 people. Oregon City is perfect for those who are looking for a Portland rental that isn’t actually in the city itself. Everything in the immediate area offers a fairly quick commute, so living in Oregon City doesn’t mean that you can’t get to a job in the downtown Portland area. This city has a skate park, museums and plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities such as fishing and boating. Another perk is the fact that Oregon City is located close to the charming towns of King City, Gladstone and West Linn. Streetscaping and a new Main Street Program are two examples of the investment that Oregon City is making in its future. As with many towns in this region, the city is also focusing on reducing its carbon footprint and pursuing sustainable initiatives.
