The City of Lebanon (pop. 17,000) is located at the edge of the Cascade Mountain foothills in the Mid-Willamette Valley in stunning northwest Oregon. Conveniently positioned near major highways and airports, Lebanon is a growing, vibrant city, yet still maintains a small town, neighborly atmosphere. The city offers many festivals and events throughout the year that bring the community together to celebrate. Lebanon has a number of well-maintained parks and is home to Mallard Creek, a beautiful 18-hole championship golf course. Some of the most dynamic destinations in the Pacific Northwest are a scenic drive from Lebanon. With the Willamette National Forest to the east and the picturesque Pacific Coast to the west, outdoor beauty and adventure make whitewater rafting, fishing, bicycling, hiking, hunting, and skiing all popular regional activities.
