Ridgefield is a very welcoming, open community with many opportunities to meet new people and connect with others. There is a farmer's market every Saturday in downtown Ridgefield, several parks that are always full of kids having fun, a library that is small, but bursting with good books, and many more great things. In the summer, the boat docks on Lake River are bursting with families and friends on day trips to the Columbia and back. Every first Saturday of the month, downtown offers a fun family experience with vendors offering crafts and other fun things to enjoy.

I moved to this area last year and I've loved it ever since. The school district is so enthusiastic and helpful. I got to take higher level classes here than I would be able to at my old school. Most students and parents here help the community, which is growing quickly due to the building of a new middle school and reconstruction of the high school. It is a great place for kids and defiantly sets them up for success.
Living that close to Portland Oregon you find that Ridgefield is a small town that gives you that feeling of being far away as well as close by! In my experience it is very small but upcoming town. The best way to see this small rural and upcoming area is promising. So much potential to be seen for this small town. Only time will show what it is capable of. I found it peaceful and absolutely tranquil.
