Parkrose is a neighborhood in the Northeast section of Portland, Oregon.

The Parkrose plat was filed October 5, 1911. A branch post office of Portland was established there in 1921.

Parkrose was a small farming and residential suburb of Portland until the 1920s. The Oregon Journal noted on May 23, 1925, "Parkrose is a primary commuting center... It is one of the most progressive and promising commuting districts on the eastern border of the city."

Parkrose was annexed by Portland, and the community was enumerated as a "Census-designated place" in 1980, when the community recorded a population of 21,108.[2] There is a Parkrose / Sumner Transit Center, which is served by the Red Line of TriMet's MAX Light Rail. A bridge at the transit center spans Interstate 205. C-Tran serves the transit center and travels into Washington. There is also a Parkrose School District.
