Wilsonville is a popular fast-growing city located only 20 minutes from Portland, Oregon. The city enjoys a diverse combination of high-tech, distribution and retail businesses.
Wilsonville is a relatively new city of 13,991 and is a major employment center in the region. It is home to corporate headquarters and distribution firms. It's prime location ,just south of Portland on 1-5 and near the 1-205 junction, is a major attraction. The largest employers include Tektronix, Inc., TeleMark Inc.., Mentor Graphics Corporation, Sysco Food Services of Portland Inc., Nike Inc., and Fry's Electronics. It is the only city in the county that has more jobs than population. Other amenities include fully served industrial land, many industrial parks, some rail service, and suburban office buildings. Much of its population lives in Charbonneau, a large upper middle income development with a 27 hole golf course.
Personally, my favorite tourist attractions are ones where you can do a number of things at once.
Sitting in a grove of trees, overlooking a creek, listening to the birds, bugs and other wildlife, it’s hard to believe this place was slated to be a prison.
