Communities in Canby, Oregon

Small town. Big adventure.

Canby is a growing community spanning almost four miles. It’s conveniently located just 25 miles south of Portland in the Willamette Valley. With easy access to the Portland Metro area via I-5, Highway 99E and I-205, it’s home to many commuters who are employed in bigger cities, but want to avoid the hustle and bustle that comes along with living there. It’s a great place to raise a family because it offers that close-knit community feel, but still delivers a vibrant lifestyle with exciting offerings, recreation, entertainment and top-rated schools nearby.

Put down roots & blossom
Canby is beautifully nestled between the Willamette and Molalla Rivers and was once a seasonal meeting place for local Indian tribes. Named after Edward Richard Sprigg Canby, a Civil War general, the area was originally known as Baker Prairie and was incorporated in 1893, making it one of the oldest communities in Oregon. Canby now boasts a population of over 16,000, but a great deal of its history is still intact, including the original 24-block town site. Canby is known for the nursery industry that surrounds the area, boasting dahlias, tulips, perennials, shrubs and trees that are sold nationwide. There’s also major employers and a strong manufacturing base. With a great selection of new homes in Canby by Lennar, families of every type can call this place home!
