Rivergrove, Oregon

Rivergrove is city in Clackamas, Oregon, United States. A small portion of the city extends into Washington County. Its name comes from a combination of the Tualatin River (which forms its southern border), and Lake Grove, a community that is now part of Lake Oswego. The population was 324 at the 2000 census.


Rivergrove came into existence January 27, 1971, after a vote of 57 to 48 in favor of incorporation. The residents were afraid of being ultimately incorporated into either lake Oswego to the northwest, or Tualatin to the southwest.
