Hillsdale Reviews

It's very close-in to everything in Portland while being a fairly quiet suburban area. Transportation (public, walking, by car) is excellent. It's a safe and clean neighborhood. There are lots of beautiful trees everywhere. I am close walking distance to everything I need like grocery stories, shops, and restaurants. There is a severe lack of sidewalks in southwest Portland but the SW Trails system makes up for that and improves pedestrian accessibility.

Hillsdale is a great place to live. It's a quiet community. There are plenty of restaurants. Parks are safe. I rent, but if I had an interest in being a home owner I would buy in this neighborhood. Traffic isn't an issue for me.
I have lived in Hillsdale county my whole life. The people make the county a safe, beautiful, encouraging place to raise children.
