Located west of Portland, Banks offers the best of both worlds: proximity to “Big City Life” in a small town and relaxed country atmosphere.
Settled in 1840, and traditionally considered a farm and timber area, the town of Banks is a combination of private and public forested land providing a timber-centric economy and continuing an Oregon legacy for locals. Though chiefly built upon agriculture and timber, many Portland metro commuters have made their homes in Banks.
Spectacular views, an 18-hole golf course (Quail Valley), a variety of boutique, antique and craft shops, nearby award-winning wineries and swimming, boating, and fishing in Hagg Lake are some of the things you can look forward to as a resident of Banks.
Explore Sunset and Greenville Parks and the public library in town. Just outside of Banks in the town of Roy, hop the Spirit of Oregon dinner train and let it take you into the coastal mountain range for an evening of adventure. Close-by Pacific University in Forest Grove has an ever-changing calendar of events from speaker’s series to concerts and art exhibits.
A mere 10-minute commute to Intel, Nike and Tektronix, and just a 45-minute drive to the coast, Banks offers the flexibility of a full array of lifestyle options, all while being firmly rooted in the country.
