Hillsboro neighbors Tigard OR and is the fifth-largest city in Oregon
Hillsboro neighbors Tigard OR and is the fifth-largest city in Oregon. Hillsboro, like Tigard, lies in the Tualatin Valley and rests in Washington County.
The city has over 100,00 residents and one of the state’s most diverse populations. There are over 1,500 acres of protected green space that include the Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve.
Hillsboro has one of the state’s largest 4th of July parades and on a regular basis, you will find wonderful community events like farmer’s markets, free concerts, and art exhibits. In the month of May, many celebrate the Latino Cultural Festival and in August they host the Oregon International Air Show.
The city has 28 parks, a stadium, fairgrounds, and the Civic Center Plaza. Downtown Hillsboro is historic and its neighborhood known as Orenco Station is an award-winning place where residents enjoy great shopping, eclectic restaurants and a great place to gather with friends and family. Orenco Station also offers easy access to public transportation.
Hillsboro is a city with eyes on the future. With the Hillsboro 2035 Community Plan, the city brought together over 5,000 community members to help with shaping the vision of the future, what the community would like to see manifest for their city by 2035. The plan has action baked right in and many of those visions for the future are already a reality. Community enhancements include the Tom Hughes Civic Center Plaza, the Hondo Dog Park, the Walters Cultural Art Center, community gardens, and diverse housing opportunities. They have also put a big emphasis on many community events that are appropriate for the whole family.
A city that is rooted in farming and farmworkers, Hillsboro takes enormous pride in all of the things that are growing in the city to make it enriched by culture, business opportunities, and advance education.
