Spotlight on Tigard c

Described as a “clean, livable and affordable” city, Tigard embodies all these things and more, successfully melding a friendly, small-town feel with the amenities of a modern city. Situated in the Tualatin Valley and a mere 10 miles from Portland, the beauty of the vast Pacific Ocean and the grandeur of Mt Hood in the Oregon Cascade Mountains are a short drive away for fun family adventures.

Family is an important component to the vitality of Tigard and the neighborhoods reflect that, revolving around the excellent schools of the Tualatin-Tigard School District, which include nine elementary, three middle and two high schools. In addition, Tigard is home to many private and professional schools and colleges. The rapid development of Washington County as a high technology center has dramatically changed the landscape of Tigard in many positive ways.

Known as the “Silicon Forest,” companies such as Precision Interconnect Corporation; Nordstrom, Inc.; Flir Systems, Inc.; Gage Industries, Inc.; Gerber, Legendary Blades Division; and Qwest Dex, Inc. have not only contributed to the tremendous population growth in the last several years, but have also provided numerous job opportunities for its residents.

While Tigard’s professional community thrives on the influx of high-tech business opportunities and families take advantage of the excellent school system, the quality of life is also greatly enhanced by the social climate that can be found within the confines of the city. The ever-changing and growing downtown features quaint antique shops, espresso bars, and fashionable restaurants along Main Street. While the Arts Commission of Tigard, Tualatin, and Sherwood actively promote the arts, the Deb Fennel Auditorium hosts the professional Broadway Rose Theatre. Tigard maintains its small-town feel with a weekly Farmer’s market and a variety of community-based festivals including the Festival of Balloons, the 4th of July fireworks show, and the Tigard Blast end of summer celebration. Tigard is also home to Washington Square; the Northwest’s largest climate controlled shopping mall, featuring a wide array of stores offering everything from typical chains to high end specialty boutiques.

Rain or shine, the residents of this beautiful city enjoy the multitude of outdoor activities as well, including the 79 acre Cook Park on the banks of the Tualatin River, Summerlake Park and Fanno Creek Park. There are also several public and private golf courses, tennis courts, bike and pedestrian paths, and city parks. From the expansion of high-tech companies to the thriving art culture to the numerous outdoor adventures available, Tigard is a great place to call home.
