Central Point is a peaceful town and offers that quiet on the river lifestyle, especially towards Gold Hill. Unfortunately we are plagued with 2-3 months of smoke filled air due to severe forest fires. The town of Talent and Phoenix just burnt down this year, just as Paradise California did.

I have lived in central point Oregon my whole life (24 years). This town is a nice place with good people. It is a beautiful place to live in. I have always felt safe and never felt like I was ever in danger. Every town has a bad side.. but this is my forever home!! Good restaurants, fun hikes and so much more!
I grew up here and it is amazing! Super safe and community oriented. There are so many opportunities to connect with other people throughout the comminity.
