Pleasant Valley encompasses several buttes – all part of the ancient Boring Lava Domes formation. In the mid-1800s, several pioneer families crossed the plains and settled in this area, acquiring land, establishing homesteads, farms and sawmills along present-day Johnson Creek, its tributaries and Foster Road. The Springwater Corridor occupies the original Portland Traction interurban rail bed which once carried passengers and freight from the Willamette to east Multnomah County. Residents of Pleasant Valley enjoy beautiful surroundings and opportunities to explore Johnson Creek watershed and other natural areas – all within easy reach of urban amenities and services.
