Portland, OR Overview

Portland is located 70 miles east of the Pacific Ocean at the northern end of Oregon’s most populated region, the Willamette Valley. Downtown Portland straddles the banks of the Willamette River which flows north through the city center, separating the east and west sections of the city before veering northwest to join with the Columbia River less than 10 miles from downtown. The Columbia River serves as the natural boundary between the states of Washington and Oregon and consequently divides the city of Portland from its most populated suburb Vancouver, Washington. Portland is situated near the foothills of the Tualatin Mountains, also called the West Hills and the Southwest Hills, which pierce through the Northwest and Southwest regions of the city. Council Crest Park, the tallest point within city limits, is located in the West Hills and rises to an elevation of 1,073 feet. To the west of the Tualatin Mountains lies the Oregon Coast Range, and to the east lies the actively volcanic Cascade Range. On clear days Mt. Hood and Mt St. Helens dominate the horizon while Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier also are sometimes visible in the distance.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 145.09 square miles (375.78 km), of which, 133.43 square miles (345.58 km) is land and 11.66 square miles (30.20 km) is water.Although almost all of Portland lies within Multnomah County, small portions of the city lie within Clackamas and Washington counties with mid-2005 populations estimated at 785 and 1,455, respectively.
