Head just 20 miles south of Portland on 99E you’ll find the beautiful community of Canby, Oregon, also known as “the garden spot”. Incorporated in 1893, the town of Canby is located on a plateau, bordered by the Willamette and Molalla Rivers and boasts a population of over 15,000. Home to the Clackamas County Fairgrounds, Canby offers plenty of amenities for those who prefer smaller town life outside of the city of Portland. Read on to learn more about some of the great places that we discovered in Canby on this episode of UnZip The Zip-Code.
The Canby Ferry has been a part of Canby’s history since 1914 when the ferry first began carrying passengers across the Willametter River. The ferry connects Canby to the Wilsonville/Stafford side of the river and is one of the three remaining ferries operating on the Willamette. Canby’s most recent ferry, the M.J. Lee II, was purchased in 1997, and still runs seven days a week.
