Pervious Pavement

At Pringle Creek Community, we are leading innovation. We are the early adopters of what is called green living. One piece to our sustainable development is pervious pavement. How is that beneficial to the environment? It means that our roads allow water from rain and snow to go straight back into the water table rather than getting displaced, picking up pollution along the way, and potentially causing flooding. We know that water is a precious resource, and in Oregon, we've got a lot of it during the rainy season. Our Maintenance Manager, Paco Sanchez, does a fantastic job at making ... Read more

Furrever Friends

Are you a dog person or a cat person (or both!)? At Pringle Creek Community, we've got so many little adorable furry and feathered creatures prancing around the grounds. It's fun to see the wild and not-so-wild animals interact. Some of our residents have herding dog breeds, so the deer and occasional turkey create and interesting situation from time to time. Even the felines of the neighborhood love to keep an eye on the deer outside their picture windows. We're a pet-friendly space, and understand that considering moving here also means considering how your pet feels about the community, ... Read more

Wonderful Winter Gardening

Some may think that produce stops happening in the Pacific Northwest in September. Truth is, there is still so much more fresh and organic produce growing. Thanks to our expert Urban Farmer, Colleen Owen, we have great tasting and nutritious food through January, and sometimes February. Colleen has even had fellow master-gardeners out at the greenhouses learning how she gets the best yield for her winter gardening. Our urban farm has greenhouses, orchards, and a lot more (yes, there's a Cluckingham Palace...). What's good in October? Glad you asked. If you're feeling cozy, then winter gourds are the ticket. You ... Read more

Healthy Urban Forests

At Pringle Creek Community, we understand how important nature is for the health of our community. It only makes sense that adding more trees to urban areas help make our community even healthier. That's why we have over a 1/3 of our development dedicated to green space. This includes cedar groves, orchards, and much more. There's something awe-inspiring about looking up at a tree that's almost 10 times bigger than you. It makes you think big, and reach for the sky. We are innovative for many reasons, and nature is definitely a major inspiration for what we do. The Reason ... Read more

Pringle Creek Critter Time

At Pringle Creek Community, we love wildlife and take measures to make sure it thrives. For instance, we work with the Department of Fish and Wildlife to make sure the creek is managed in a way that allows for wild salmon to flourish. We manage the land sustainably, and that means, when you walk by the blackberries, you can pluck them off the vine without any worries, although you might find some mineral rich dirt on them from time to time. We also love watching the deer and turkeys that have been frequenting our community. We've got bird boxes, ... Read more
