Wilsonville is located approximately 20 miles outside of Portland. The grandson of frontier folk hero Daniel Boone settled the area that would eventually become Wilsonville in 1847. With the establishment of the Boone’s Ferry for transportation across the Willamette River, the community started to grow into the thriving city of 22,000 that it is today.
Graced with the winning combination of rolling green hills dotted with farms, beautiful estates, friendly neighborhoods and a growing tech presence, the city is located south of Portland along the I-5 corridor. Comprised of a number of neighborhoods as well as the planned golf community of Charbonneau and the Villebois development, Wilsonville has a wide variety of housing options.
Real estate offerings are diverse in the area with opportunities for buyers seeking properties with acreage, single-family homes in more populated areas, ranch houses, townhomes or condominiums. With both new and established neighborhoods, the city has worked carefully to promote smart growth.
The city’s 126 acre Memorial Park offers something for everyone including a public boat dock, trail system, extensive athletic facilities, picnic areas and a skate park. Magness Memorial Tree Farm and Graham Oaks Nature Park are both within an easy driving distance. Also notable, is the Town Centre shopping area that includes shopping and dining conveniences and a number of nearby community farm fresh venues.
The Wilsonville School District is ranked in the top three for academics in the state of Oregon and is ranked the number one school district for athletes.
