Tigard, Oregon, is a Shopper’s (and Kayaker’s) Paradise

With a population of about 50,000, the city of Tigard (pronounced TIE-gurd) is located just south of Portland in southeastern Washington County. It is home to the region’s premier tax-free shopping destinations—Washington Square and Bridgeport Village—and has a community that is devoted to the arts, with the only professional musical theater company in the region.

Outdoor recreation opportunities in Tigard include easy access to the Tualatin River, which runs through much of Washington County.

Recreation is tops here, with Tigard’s Cook Park providing access to the Tualatin River, a calm waterway that is popular with paddlers. The Fanno Creek Greenway Trail (as well as the Tualatin River Water Trail) connects Cook Park to the Tualatin Community Park. Highlights of this trail include wetlands and ponds, oak forest and the flowered landscape of the Tupling Butterfly Garden.

Main Street, located in Tigard’s downtown, is home to where visitors may create a glass masterpiece at the area’s only public glass-blowing  art  studio. A few favorite local restaurants and a brewery also attract many to this reinvigorated downtown street.

For more information about Tigard, please visit the Tigard Chamber of Commerce, or the City of Tigard.
