Definitely a place to raise your kids. My family has been living here for 13yrs. It's grown a lot. The parks are really nice. Though it's not much diversity...things are changing for the better. We all get there one step at a time by educating one another. Our commute is something of a challenge. With freeways being congested most days, taking back roads is one everyones mind. I believe that is the case more and more. Neighborhood is pretty quiet. You have neighbors taking night strolls just to get out and get some air. I believe that's what I enjoy the most...I get my steps in without having to go to a store where I'd be tempted to shop.

I love Wilsonville Oregon. Wilsonville is a safe and small town with practically everything someone could possibly need. One thing that I really enjoy is how many parks we have, and space for wildlife. There are not large buildings on every corner which makes this town so much better. If there is one negative to living in Wilsonville, it would be the traffic.
I have lived in Wilsonville for three years now and I love it. I am a single parent of a toddler. There are eight parks within walking distance and the police station is central in town. The public bus system here in town is free making access very easy. This is a family town where everything closes early and there are a few bars open late. I feel very safe in this city and I think if you have a family this is the town for you!
