Roughly fourteen miles outside of Portland, there is a wonderful city, aptly named Happy Valley, Oregon. Happy Valley is situated in Clackamas County and boasts picturesque scenery, a close-knit community, and an abundance of amenities and attractions. The city was first settled in the nineteenth century and named Christilla Valley in honor of its first settlers, Christian and Matilda Deardorff. It was not incorporated until 1965, and today it encompasses the peak of Mount Scott, an impressive volcanic cinder stone, as well as Scouters Mountain Nature Park and Happy Valley Nature Park.
Because of its proximity to Portland, Happy Valley affords residents the best of both worlds. You can relax and enjoy the city’s small-town charm, yet still easily access big city conveniences. Portland’s many museums, art galleries, coffee shops, breweries, movie theaters, parks, gardens, and restaurants are all easily accessible to Happy Valley residents. When you buy a home in this remarkable city, you can also enjoy Portland’s many exciting events and festivals. Pop over to the big city to enjoy the Rose Festival or Waterfront Blues Festival or visit Voodoo Doughnut, the Portland Japanese Garden, or the Oregon Railroad and Heritage Center, then escape the city’s hustle and bustle and retreat to your Happy Valley home.
