Rivergrove is city in Clackamas, Oregon, United States. A small portion of the city extends into Washington County. Its name comes from a combination of the Tualatin River (which forms its southern border), and Lake Grove, a community that is now part of Lake Oswego. The population was 324 at the 2000 census.

History

Rivergrove came into existence January 27, 1971, after a vote of 57 to 48 in favor of incorporation. The residents were afraid of being ultimately incorporated into either lake Oswego to the northwest, or Tualatin to the southwest.

Other than some subtle signage on three streets entering Rivergrove, there is no clear demarkation separating Rivergrove from either adjacent community: one has to know that it exists to even be aware that one is driving through the city.
