Canby Real Estate
The city of Canby is known as the Garden Spot because of its history of wild strawberries as well as the famous Swan Island Dahlia Farm. Canby has over 12,000 people, and is located in Clackamas county south of Portland. There is also St. Josf’s Wine Cellar, Canby’s Grower’s Market, Fir Point Produce, Canby’s Saturday Market, and Hoffman’s Dairy Garden which hosts quite a few farm festivals.
Other attractions of Canby is the newer Canby Ferry which transports passengers across the Willamette river over to Wilsonville. The ferry has been running since 1917 and although the ferry may be new, the prices are still quite reasonable: $.50 for motorcycles and $1.25 for cars and pickups. Another attraction from days gone by is the Canby Depot Museum which is one of the oldest remaining railroad stations in Oregon. Click here to search for your dream home in Canby!

Canby is a small town within a larger community. With all that Canby has to offer as well as being so near to Oregon City, Wilsonville, and Portland only 20 miles south, there is something for everyone while still feeling like one is living in a quaint town from the past.
