West Linn is known as the City of Hills Trees and Rivers. Nestled next to the Willamette and Tualatin rivers the city has scenic vistas in nearly every direction. But what the community knows best  is what a great place it is to raise a family.

The schools in the West Linn-Wilsonville School District are routinely named among the best in the state as well as the nation. With one high school two middle schools and six primary schools  students are taught by award-winning teachers in world-class facilities.

The City of West Linn boasts 600 acres of park land which is impressive for a city that is 7.39 square miles. That green space provides plenty of room for families to play, hike, exercise and just get away from it all. The Parks and Recreation Department provides year-round opportunities for sports classes camps and activities. They also sponsor popular events like the Old Time Fair Movies in the Park and Concerts in the Park.

The West Linn Public Library is a vibrant and vital part of life in the city. Since opening its doors in 1939 with a collection of 350 books and two magazine subscriptions, the West Linn Public Library has grown with the community. Today, the library is a welcoming 28000-square-foot facility with two public meeting rooms, a public art gallery,  two computer labs and wireless access throughout the building.

Safe and Sound,

Thanks to an extremely low crime rate, families also feel safe and secure. The city is routinely named among the safest in the state and the nation. Family Circle Magazine and Money Magazine have also named West Linn as one of the best places to live and to raise a family.

Perhaps the city’s greatest asset is its residents.  Residents truly look out for one another and the city itself. From Take Care of West Linn Day to Neighbors Helping Neighbors the community is loaded with volunteers who help make every day a great.
