Located just outside the southeast portion of Portland, Milwaukie is a unique city of just more than 21,000 people nestled along the banks of the Willamette River. We’re home to some well-known businesses that also reflect the community’s personality, such as Dark Horse Comics, Bob’s Red Mill and Breakside Brewing.
What Milwaukie lacks in size, it more than makes up for in community engagement! The city is proud of its very active and enthusiastic community members, who frequently participate in city-led programs and projects, and volunteer for boards, committees, commissions, events, etc.
We’re excited to take everyone on a tour of our fascinating city and provide a glimpse into what makes Milwaukie remarkable! For a more in-depth look, check out the city’s social media accounts:
