Happy Valley is a city in Clackamas County, located 6 miles southeast of Portland. Prior to Happy Valley’s incorporation to the City of Portland, it was a relatively small community that prided themselves on being a rural residential area with approximately 300 citizens. It remained relatively small until the late 1990’s, and has since become one of the fastest growing cities in Oregon. Happy Valley now has over 18,600 residents, and is governed by the Happy Valley City Council. It’s community neighbors include Clackamas, Gresham, and Milwaukie. Additionally, it part of the North Clackamas school district, with Clackamas High School, Happy Valley Middle School and Rock Creek Middle school to serve the student population.
One of Happy Valley’s highlights includes it’s parks and recreational areas. In fact, there are 2 trails and 8 neighborhood parks including a very popular Happy Valley Park. Happy Valley Park features 24 acres of wetlands in addition to a boardwalk, a 3-quarter mile paved path for walkers and joggers, 3 off-leash dog areas, and the city Splash Pad. The Splash Pad facility features 16 water sprays in a variety of spray sequences for children to enjoy. There is also Skate Park, a family friendly environment that gives beginner and intermediate skaters 3,500 square feet of space to enjoy. Another Happy Valley highlight is National Night out, an annual community event that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.
