The city of Sandy, population 9,570, sits tucked in the foothills of Mount Hood and the Cascade range. The powerful Sandy River weaves right through town. From its past as a timber-town and toll-house stop on the Oregon Trail, Sandy’s grown into a vibrant, friendly and industrious community. Just 30 miles east of Portland, Sandy offers all the amenities of a city while preserving a small-town and neighborly feel.
Since 2011, the city of Sandy has added a brand-new high school; expanded police station and state-of-the-art library, providing local residents with world-class facilities. And with its quiet, country roads and proximity to mountain trails and riverbanks, the Sandy area is also a popular destination for mountain and road bikers, anglers, hikers and skiers from around the world.
