Gladstone is a small suburb outside of Portland, Oregon. There are cute shops to look in, a beautiful library to browse, and many places to walk around. The schools are great, the people are kind, and overall, it's a great place to live.
Gladstone is so family-friendly and has some great access to public parks! Traffic is becoming more of an issue, but this is related more to the growing population of Portland.
