City of Roses, is located in the northwestern corner of Oregon at the
confluence of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. It is about 65
miles inland from the Pacific Ocean on the Oregon-Washington state
border and is encircled by vast forests, snow-capped mountains,
canyons, and waterfalls. By nature and by design, Portland is one
of the "greenest" cities in the US. This distinction comes from
its moderate climate and a civic pride in protecting the environment.
The city hosts the nation's smallest dedicated park (2 foot square Mill
Ends Park) and the largest forested urban park (4300 acre Forest Park).
Perennially near the top of the USA's most liveable cities list,
Portland is known nationally for its progressive politics, relaxed pace
and its love of the outdoors and the environment. Downtown Portland is
an urban success story: vital, bustling, tree-filled and gregarious. A
cap on building height has kept even the most modern areas human-sized
and comfortably proportioned.
