I love my neighborhood; I moved here when I was in 7th grade and I've seen it grow so much just in the past 5 years. The sense of community in my neighborhood is so incredibly strong and comforting. The relationships I've nurtured with my neighbors are relationships I'll cherish years after I move away for school, whether it be the families I babysit for or the neighbors that let me use their dock during the summer.

The Willamette river is my favorite place where I can go and feel as if I went on an short outdoor trip. My children and I enjoy biking near the river and walking to the peninsula. We also enjoy watching the fish leap in the river in the early evenings and sometimes early in the morning
A lit of the people who live in the area are from a very rough, or live in a rough house. Many come from a background of violence, but have chosen to become the "better" person. The neighbor Hood also has a lot of traffic problems at the intersection.
