Russell Reviews

We just moved to Russell. We really like our MidCentury ranch with its big yard. It's relatively quiet here with 5 parks within a 5 to 12 minute walk. Neighbors are down to earth and friendly.

There is a bit of background noise from planes and I-84 but it's not too bad. It's quieter in the evening and on weekends. It's a breeze to drive to downtown and the Gorge.

Russell is mostly residential, but everything you need is a short drive away. Transit access is somewhat limited. There are two MAX park and ride stations 5 minutes away and the 77 bus line on Halsey is fairly frequent.

There is evident pride of ownership and many longtime residents. There's not much in the way of nightlife. There's a great vegan grocery store (Food Fight) and cafe (Jet Black Coffee) with WIFI at 112th and Halsey. Western States Chiropractic College is an asset, with several health centers nearby.

The sidewalks aren't totally connected. Bike / ped projects planned to improve safety by 2021.
