Sherwood has been regarded time again as one of the best places to live!
One of Oregon’s fastest growing and most desirable towns to live in, in 2006 Sherwood was an “All American City Finalist” and in 2007 Sherwood came in #18 among the “Best Places to Live in the Nation” by CNN Money Magazine. Following that success, in 2009, this quaint and history rich town of less than 20,000 residents was named among the Top #10 “Best Places for Families” featured in Family Circle Magazine. Since then, Sherwood has received a few accolades including being named among the safest cities to live in Oregon.

Sherwood is a medley of juxtapositions – 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 roads and city center. The quiet of Old Town’s antique stores, locally owned restaurants and boutique shops are only minutes away from tasting rooms through the wine country, along with commercial businesses like Regal Cinemas, a 10-screen theater, Hobby Lobby, the YMCA, Providence Medical Clinic, the Sherwood Ice Arena which features a double-sheet ice rink, and so much more!
This vitality of opposition makes Sherwood one of Oregon’s most livable cities, providing attractions for all. It is a family-oriented community not far from the down-town city life of Portland Oregon, with amazing access to lifestyles for the equine and wine lover too. The community takes great pride in what the area has to offer, including wonderful housing options, excellent schools and desirable athletic programs.
The city is a perfect bedroom community, located on Highway 99W, between Tigard and Newberg, an important transportation triangle in south Washington County.
