Our vision is world-class public access to Willamette Falls through an experience that honors the site's historical and cultural significance, repairs and conserves the natural habitat, and strengthens the regional economy.


Our mission is to champion and sustain a world-class Willamette Falls experience that offers year-round access to the grandeur of the Falls, historic and cultural interpretation, healthy habitat, public open spaces, and that showcases the hospitality of historic Oregon City.




In 1889, Willamette Falls was the site of the world’s first long-distance electrical power transmission line, from Oregon City to Portland.
