Beaverton, Oregon, is the state's fifth largest city with more than 1,500,000 residents. People love it, and if you have a park just half a mile from your home, Beaverton Oregon is a special place to live.
I also like the Greenway, which is a great option if you don't want to travel that far. Walgreens and Safeway are right in the center of town, so if I wanted to do something I wanted, it was just a few blocks from my house.
If you want to escape the hustle and bustle, there are several parks in South Beaverton, and the vast Tualatin Hills Natural Park is right here, right next to the Beavertons Creek wetlands.
This is one of my favourite routes for cycling, as you can even connect to the bridge that leads from Cook Park across Cook's Park to Tualatin. The ride and views are breathtaking, and if you start in SW Portland and quickly get to Beaverton or Tigard, this route takes you right through the heart of the city. Those who have Googled "Beaverton, Oregon" or "Tigard, Oregon" will take this route to quickly get to the outer Beaverston and Tigard.
Because the city is so large and there are few major routes in Portland, the outer neighborhoods have a lot of traffic, as do the postcodes and addresses of Portland. The map above shows the neighborhoods of Beaverton, Tigard, Portland School and Washington County, all with a different postcode and address, in the same Portland area. I have few people looking for these neighborhoods because they want to be near the school in Portland, but they have taxes in Washington County, so it can be very frustrating to sit in traffic trying to get into the city center.
The following map is the official Beaverton Neighborhood Map, which I downloaded from her website in March 2018. As you can see on the map, the West Slope is surrounded by Portland, but it feels more like the West Hills of Portland because it is located there. There are small pockets that are on 26, Highway 8 and 87, and it's a bit closer to downtown than it used to be.
This area also has many hiking trails, and the Fanno Creek Trail and Denny's Trail are accessible from the west side of the neighborhood. This neighborhood is south of Beaverton and Hillsdale, but it is close enough to the city to be accessible from both the east and west sides of Portland.
The city has excellent transport links and is served by TriMet. Numerous bus lines serve the west side. Light rail services connect residents with Portland International Airport, which operates over 500 flights to and from Portland daily. The transit center also serves MAX stations, but it is also home to several bus lines serving Beaverton and surrounding communities. Since early 2009, it has also been served by WES Commuter Rail (52), which operates south of Wilsonville, and the MAX Line light rail line, which runs south of Tigard to Tualatin. Both operate on the same timetable, while Tri metros continues to operate several bus lines to Beavertons and the surrounding community.
The Beaverton Residences have access to Verteran High School, Oregon's largest public school, and Beaverton Community College. Oregon State University, a prestigious private school, is also just 30 miles from Beaverton. There are several other high schools in the city as well as a number of private colleges and universities.
Central Beaverton is actually a business district that includes a number of downtown shops as well as several residential neighborhoods such as the West End.
There were four private bus companies that supplied the Portland metropolitan area, collectively known as the Blue Bus Line. The last transit center was on the right - from - the road that formerly belonged to Burlington Northern Railroad, while the Oregon Electric Railway had been providing overland service in Beaverton since 1933. In the 1970s, all four companies were replaced by bus routes that expanded to other areas in and around Beaverton. In December 2004, the city and Washington County announced an interim plan that would make Beaveron the first city in the United States to have a public transportation system.
Lobbying succeeded when the Oregon Legislative Assembly passed Senate Bill 887, which prohibited Beaverton from annexing Nike without the company's consent. Lobbyists succeeded in the state legislature and the US House of Representatives when it passed Senate Acts 888 and 889 in 2004 and 2006, respectively. Lobbying is successful inOregon, where the Portland State University School of Public Health and Human Services and the Oregon State Department of State's Office of Public Health work together, and in Washington, where the state Department of Education worked in 2009. Lobbying in both states was successful in 2008 and 2009.
