Spotlight on Sherwood d

While Sherwood is one of the fastest growing towns in Oregon, this expansion has not squelched the small-town atmosphere of this livable community. Sherwood was ranked one of the top 10 Best Towns and Cities to raise families by Family Circle.

Sherwood is a medley of juxtapositions with the old and the new creating a unique harmony. The protected wetlands of the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge and the rolling hills of fertile farmland surround Sherwood’s bustling highway, city center, new neighborhoods and parks. The quaint Old Town with its antique stores, tea shops and Veteran’s Park are only minutes away from new commercial businesses such as the ACT II 10-screen theater, the YMCA and the Ice Hus, a double-sheet ice rink.

Likewise, Sherwood real estate spans the gamut from planned neighborhoods of new homes offering all the luxuries and latest amenities of today’s real estate, to large acreage properties dedicated to farming and equestrian centers. The fertile land is especially suited for vineyards and many of Oregon’s award winning wineries are within a few minutes drive from Sherwood properties.

This vitality makes Sherwood one of Oregon’s most livable cities, providing attractions for all. It is a family-oriented community not far from the commercial bustle of Portland. The city is located on Highway 99W, between Tigard and Newberg, an important transportation triangle in south Washington County. The location also makes it ideal for professionals who commute to work in Portland and want to live in the quiet of the Sherwood residential community, and take advantage of Sherwood properties which offer less costly housing options than some closer venues.

Sherwood’s School District serves 4,532 students and includes three elementary schools, one middle school and one high school. The city boasts nine parks including Veteran's Park, the central focus for Sherwood's Festivals, Saturday Farmer's Market, Arts and Crafts Fairs, Cruisin' Sherwood, and the Robin Hood Festival.

City of Sherwood Open Space Management Program
“A Sustainable Sherwood is a healthy and livable community that fosters long-term goals to maintain a strong sense of community, to encourage a stable and balanced economy, and to promote biological diversity and wisely manage our natural resources.” ~ A Sustainable Sherwood Strategy. Sherwood is noted as being very successful in protecting its environmental resources and having one of the highest rates of open space, per capita, in Oregon. Currently the City of Sherwood manages over 300 acres of open space that were either purchased by or dedicated to the City to preserve local streams, wetlands, and riparian corridors.

Dedicated to Education (Various programs and ideologies)
"Calling for Kids" is the annual Sherwood Education Foundation Phone-a-thon. This nonprofit organization has been dedicated to improving the education of children in Sherwood Schools since 1999 and has awarded over $110,000 in educational grants and $80,000 for textbooks.
