Newberg is located approximately 25 miles southwest of Portland,
Oregon on US Highway 99W on the northeast side of Yamhill County.
Although conveniently situated near the many assets of the Portland
metropolitan area, the community retains a distinct physical separation
from the metro region, buffered by a greenbelt of rural forests and
farmlands. The Chehalem Mountains surrounding the community and the
broad Willamette River create a natural bowl, providing a special sense
of place that is cherished by the citizens of Newberg.
Newberg is home to 21,675 people and enjoys a diverse, economic base.
The community's strategic location also provides numerous recreational
opportunities. A short drive provides access to the urbane pleasures of
Portland. Countless rivers and forests are within easy driving distance,
offering boating, fishing, and hunting opportunities. Several golf
courses are located in the county. World-class wine tasting is available
throughout Yamhill County, which has the reputation of being the Napa
Valley of Oregon. A one-hour drive east will take one to the Cascade
Mountains for skiing, camping, fishing and hiking. A one-hour drive west
will take one to the breathtaking views of the Pacific coastline, with
its many beautiful beaches.
With an elevation of only 175 feet above sea level and a relatively
close location to the Pacific Ocean, Newberg enjoys a very moderate
climate. The average high temperature is 65 degrees Fahrenheit (16
degrees Celsius) and the average low temperature is 39 degrees
Fahrenheit (7 degrees Celsius). The local growing season is
approximately 174 days. The annual average of rainfall is 42 inches.
Newberg is a fast growing community that has still managed to maintain a
relaxed pace that complements the friendly people who live here. It is a
community where its citizens are rightfully proud of their Newberg
heritage and its future.
