Situated a few miles southeast of downtown Milwaukie,
the mostly suburban North Clackamas
neighborhood lures residents seeking condo
and apartment rentals in a quieter setting. Tree-filled parks and well-rated private and public schools virtually surround the area, while proximity to Interstate 205 and Highway 224 assure access to ample amenities within striking distance of nearby Portland.
Put on your walking shoes and head up to North Clackamas Park, a 47-acre spread providing baseball fields, picnic facilities, a playground, and a leash-free dog run. For more challenging hiking, hit the nature trails at Mount Talbert Nature Park, a great place to spot native and migrating wildlife. Relax at one of the many eateries located near the neighborhood’s northeast corner, such as Gustav’s Pub and Grill, a popular spot well-regarded for its innovative German fare.
