You’ll love the spacious feel of the area outside, and many homes for sale come with much more property than you would find inside the Portland city limits.

A Day of Indoor and Outdoor Family Fun in West Linn
The natural setting of the city makes it perfect for hikers, kayakers, boaters, bird watchers, mountain bikers, and outdoor enthusiasts of all types. (How very Oregonian!) Parks, community centers, and golf courses complete the fun for sports enthusiasts, as you can easily find a playground, soccer field, baseball diamond, or tee time at parks like Mary S. Young State Park. That park even has a bridge to a little island in the middle of its lake! Willamette Falls is also not to be missed. West Linn is also famous for its oh-so-very Portland-y Arts Festival in the Forest, which is free to the public and held every August. Families are even more attracted to West Linn because of its great public school system and the wonderful West Linn Public Library. If you’re hungry after all of your activities, try Bugattis Ristorante, an Italian restaurant known for its locally-sourced ingredients and promotion of sustainable agriculture. It’s perfect by day for families or for date night in the evening, and you’ll have even more fun with how interesting and unique the place is!
How to Get to West Linn
Tucked between I-205 and Highway 43 along the Willamette River, West Linn is a simple commute from Portland and can be reached from points south via I-5. You’re just over the I-205 bridge to shops and grocery stores on McLoughlin Boulevard, as well. West Linn has the distinction of being secluded and private in the hills and forest, like the countryside, yet close at hand to everything you need, just like a suburb.
Calling West Linn Home
You’ll feel the cares of the city start to fall away as you get closer and see more of the view and smell the clean air. Then, when you see the view out the window of your living room, you will know you’ve made it home.
