Cedar Hills has been my home for eight years since I moved into my grandparents home in 2011. I chose to live here for the remote access to Mt.Hood for skiing and I have fallen in love with it with all of it's flaws. Beware, there is a severe of the lack of good sidewalks and foot traffic connections, the light rail stations are always inconvenient to access, and the traffic is growing worse with every passing year because the roads and highways are in desperate need of improvement to accommodate the growing population. It might be the prime example of west coast affluence and expensiveness, but the ocean is near and paradise is here.

Overall, Cedar Hills is a great place to live. There are many great and diverse food places close by. There are also activities such as bowling, movies, and athletic clubs within a few minutes drive. It takes around 15 minutes to get into downtown Portland which offers even more opportunities. Cedar Hills also offers multiple parks and hiking trails for those who love the outdoors.
The area of cedar hills is a beautiful one. I enjoy the people and the communities all around. The schools especially Cedar Park, are one of the best middle schools in my opinion. The staff and teachers genuinely care for their students. One thing that I hope for is an improvement of our parks that are run by thprd. Whether it be making sure garbage is off the floors of the park, or that people aren't feeding the ducks and animals food they shouldn't be fed. Making sure our green areas are kept thriving is important to many especially since we live in such a beautiful state.
