With a diverse economy, strong schools and outstanding parks, Tigard is one of the most livable cities in Oregon. Since its incorporation in 1961, the city has grown to become a desirable and affordable community in the Portland area. 

Today, Tigard bustles with recreation (golf, bowling, Fanno Creek Trail), shopping (Washington Square) and culture (Broadway Rose Theatre Company) as well as its own unique salute to summer, the Festival of Balloons, each June.


Residents enjoy access to more than 16 miles of paved trails and nearly 550 acres of parks and open spaces.

Planned to open in 2022, Universal Plaza will be a place for everyone- a community gathering spot in the heart of downtown Tigard that celebrates our shared humanity and our one shared planet.

Let's Go Downtown!

Exciting changes are transforming Downtown Tigard. The historic and walkable area has shopping, eating and drinking establishments, as well as superb transit service and access to the Fanno Creek and Tigard Street trails for bikers and walkers. Visit the Sunday Farmers Market and bring your canine to the Ash Avenue Dog Park. Enjoy the decorative glass baskets and two gateway sculptures that welcome visitors to Main Street.

Thanks to a voter-approved urban renewal district, the revitalization is well-underway. The City Center Development Agency—Tigard’s urban renewal agency—has guided the transformation in partnership with businesses and property owners, the Tigard Downtown Alliance and many others. The city and its partners are working to create more public spaces, easier access for people of all ages and abilities and attracting new residents and businesses. Come to downtown Tigard and see how we’ve changed.
