One of Oregon’s most spectacular natural treasures is on the brink of a new chapter. Willamette Falls is the second most powerful waterfall in North America and an important Oregon historical and cultural treasure.
For more than 150 years, the awe-inspiring beauty of Willamette Falls has been closed to the public. Soon, it won’t be. Oregon City, Clackamas County, Metro and the State of Oregon are working with the site’s private owners, stakeholders and thousands of community members to bring people up close to the falls. Plans include creating a public riverwalk alongside the Willamette River and laying the groundwork for vibrant downtown development.
