I have lived in the city of Tigard for 12 years and I have enjoyed being in the area. Tigard is a pretty safe place to live with lots of police enforcement and protection. The families in the Tigard community are friendly and supportive. The only thing I would change about Tigard would be the ability to walk places. In neighborhoods and such there are usually safe sidewalks to walk on. However, on the busy roads there are not. One main road for example is Hall blvd. In some areas of that road there are safe sidewalks and a safe bike lane. But other parts of the road sidewalks are absent and other a bike lane exists which is very unsafe for pedestrians. Overall, I would still give my experience 4 stars because I have enjoyed growing up there and feel that I wouldn't be the person I am today if I lived somewhere else.

I love how inviting and friendly everyone is here in Tigard. I have lived here my whole life and basically everyone knows everyone! It is quite a peaceful neighborhood and really nice trails and paths to go walking. Though the housing is much more expensive than a regular neighborhood.
Tigard has a great small city community! Downtown Tigard is very new and modern, there's plenty of things to do downtown.
