Our city is beautifully rich with diverse culture, terrain and experiences. With incredible public gardens and delightful historical residences, the Willamette Valley is filled with botanical inspiration, hiking trails and a 900 acre Minto-Brown Island Park with a network of paths along the Willamette River. We produce more agricultural products than any other county in Oregon – so festivals and fresh culinary experiences abound. We are proud of our Keizer Volcanoes baseball team. Their games are an affordable delight for all ages. The Willamette Valley has produced over 30 award-winning wineries and has also attracted a new crop of cider makers and craft brewers. So if wine or craft beer tasting sounds like a delightful afternoon, choices are plentiful. From cooking classes to camping, kayaking, cycling and fishing…we are so lucky to call this our home.
