I have been a resident of Tigard for over 15 years. Schools are fantastic. There are numerous parks and outdoor/rec programs. There is a wonderful selection of shopping (including Bridgeport Mall, Washington Square and Costco). Everything I need is within a 10 minute drive of my home. And for even more options, Tigard is only 10 miles from downtown Portland!

Where I live is beautiful, up on the largest hill in Tigard (up Canterbury lane) on the edge of Tigard and Sherwood (King's City). I moved here from McMinville, which I loved a lot. In McMinnville it was easy to get around town, the parks were beautiful and clean, and the people were incredibly friendly. When moving to Tigard, however, it's taking quite an adjustment period. It's difficult to get from one place to another unless you are already familiar with the set-up. If you miss your turn, you often will have to go far out of your way to correct your mistake. The people are noticeably less friendly on the road and in stores. The parks leave more to be expected. Overall I do not think I have seen enough of Tigard to have a fully educated opinion. Tigard is a very large city, I've only lived here for about four months, and I look forward to exploring it further.
Tigard is a friendly community without the big city issues, even though it borders Portland. The city government listens to its residents, and has implemented several programs based on the residents feedback. Public transportation and infrastructure can use some improvement, but the regional government is charged with that task, and is working on a plan now.
