January Jaunts

At Pringle Creek Community, we cherish all the wonderful things to do right in the heart of the Willamette Valley. During the winter, people may partake in visiting a winery or two, taking in some art, go to the theater, follow up on a New Year's resolution to be more fit and find a running buddy, and visit a wildlife refuge to see what life is scurrying about, even on the snowy days. We are an urban oasis, that's just minutes away from downtown and a jaunt to the coast, temperate rainforests, and to get to a snow-covered mountain ... Read more

Paradise Found

We are thrilled to be featured in Marie Claire's January 2017 issue, where Kiera Carter, writes about all the thoughts that go through a person's head when they are considering moving to a more sustainable community.

Some residents come as experienced gardeners wanting to participate 110% in the community ... Read more
