The Parkrose Neighborhood Association was formed in 1985 with the purpose of protecting the general livability of the Parkrose Neighborhood. The area has been in transition from an agricultural to an urban environment since the first subdivision plat was filed in 1911.

Some of the main street commercial that was once served by a street car on Sandy Boulevard remains viable today. Parkrose is home to several destinations including Parkrose Hardware, Grocery Outlet, Senn's Dairy Park, Parkrose High School, and a few ethnic restaurants along Sandy Boulevard.
