Perrydale is an unincorporated community of about 60 people in Polk County, Oregon, United States, approximately 10 miles from Dallas. It is part of the Salem Metropolitan Statistical Area.
The community has a K-12 school, Perrydale School District, as well as a small fabrication plant. The economy is based on farming and logging, with some residents working in these industries while others commute to jobs in neighboring communities.
Perrydale was formed out of three Donation land claims, known as the Townsend, Kinsey, and Butler claims; the Townsend claim was deeded to Narcis Provo, who then deeded it to William Perry, after whom the community was named, a name chosen by John McGrew, who had bought Perry's claim and platted the town of Perrydale. The town was also the site of an Oregonian Railway Company station established in 1881.

They are the Townsend, Kinsey, and Butler land claims. The Townsend land claim was deeded to Narcis Provo in 1859 and then to William Perry in 1866; then he deeded it to John McGrew. Three years later Mr. McGrew plotted the town of Perrydale, embracing seven blocks and named the town after William Perry, from whom he had bought the property."
