Infrastructure

General

Wood Village has one city park, Donald L. Robertson City Park, between NE Treehill Drive and NE Halsey Street. The city hall also has the maintenance yard, at NE Halsey and NE 238th Avenue.

Transportation

TriMet route [http://www.trimet.org/schedule/r077.htm 77 Broadway/Halsey] runs through town with several stops on NE Halsey Street. Due to the steep cliff of the Columbia River Gorge on NE 238th, connection to the MAX Light Rail system is made at 82nd Avenue in Portland rather than Cleveland Avenue in neighboring Gresham.

The city has one exit, Exit 16, off Interstate 84 and U.S. Route 30. I-84 continues through Fairview to the west and Troutdale to the east. US 30 splits in Wood Village, with the main line following the route of I-84. US 30 Bypass starts on NE 238th Avenue, before turning west at NE Sandy Blvd. and continuing into Gresham.

Because of its location inside the Metro Region, all streets are named using Portland quadrant conventions, despite being about 15 miles away from the city. Because the entire City of Wood Village is north of Portland's Burnside Street and east of the Willamette River, all streets are in "Northeast" Wood Village, regardless of their proximity to the center of town.
