Whether it involves boats or binoculars, bicycles or hiking boots, sand pails or gold pans, Waldport has something to offer...(click to read more)

Summer is upon us now and the search begins for summer activities. Residents and tourists alike, if you're looking for things to do around town, check out the Old Town area off of Highway 34. There are several shops, restaurants, and the port docks, where you can rent crab rings and either toss them from the dock, or rent a boat and head out into the bay. The Port of Alsea has a wealth of information on water-related activities and regulations. With miles of sandy beach at your disposal, you can build a sandcastle, fly a kite, watch the seals, share a picnic with the seagulls and ravens, beachcomb to your heart's content, or just relax and enjoy the spectacular view. Grab a free bike from the Green Bike shop and pedal your way around town, or if you're feeling adventurous, explore some of the backroads and byways. The City's skate park is located on Crestline Drive, and there's a small children's play area available. You can take the Woodland Trail which starts behind Kendall Field on Starr Street to get there, or to just enjoy a leisurely and beautiful hike through the woods. The Waldport Wednesday Market is a popular venue for crafts and fresh foods, and many of the vendors are also there on Saturday. If the weather does not cooperate with outdoor pursuits, wander through the shops on Highway 101, head over to the Waldport Library for a book or two, or visit the Waldport Heritage Museum and the Interpretive Center to learn more about the history of this area. For additional ideas and links, visit the Parks page. There's always something to do here, if you know where to look!

We're pleased to announce that the City will be implementing electronic billing later on this summer, which will allow customers to view their account information and/or make payments online, as well as opt for paperless billing. We anticipate this to start soon after the beginning of the next fiscal year (July 1), as it will involve an upgrade in hardware and security software. However, if you wish to get a "jump start" on the process, please send a short email to Utility Billing Clerk, Robin Morris, and she can get your email address into the system.


Thinking you'd like to be more involved? The City of Waldport currently has two vacancies on the Planning Commission. For information on these positions and the required qualifications, please click here.
