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!

Wilsonville is a tight-knit community filled with families that focus on their children and the wellbeing of the community as a whole. I have a totally blind and autistic son and we have always felt welcome and included. There are lots of restaurants and family owned businesses that give back to the community. Traffic on Wilsonville road can be challenging at times, but that's nothing new around these parts! It's a privilege and an honor to live here.
Wilsonville is very clean and good for young families, however there is not much to do. Also, the traffic situation continues to get worse each year with no apparent solution. It's close to Portland and the river which gives it a good location which is a positive aspect however the food options are not great and everything closes very early at night. Overall not a bad town, but there's really nothing exceptional about it.
