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.

Tigard is a wonderful place to raise a family. It is very friendly and safe. We are very close to freeway access, schools, parks, and shopping. The weather is wet, yet wonderful! So green and beautiful.
I love Tigard Oregon! It is every part of living in the city without actually living in the city! That means you can always find parking. And the downtown scene is only a 15 minute drive away! The town is beautiful and kept up well.
