Home to approximately 89,800 residents, Beaverton, Oregon, is the fifth largest city in the state. Composed of 18.73 square miles, Beaverton is situated in beautiful Washington County, one of the fastest developing areas in the State of Oregon.
This formerly sleepy suburb transformed into a sprawling city during the 1990’s when the MAX light rail line was built through Beaverton. This unique community is more densely populated and more diverse than Portland with one-fifth of its residents being foreign-born. Despite its diversity and population density, Beverton doesn't’ look like a city, but instead resembles a charming small town.
Along Canyon Road and the Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway, just west of Highway 217, you’ll find the heart of old downtown Beaverton. Around the original downtown area you’ll find a plethora of one-store retail outlets, mini-malls and car dealerships. Just north of old downtown you’ll find the Cedar Hills Mall, and all of these easily accessible amenities attract shoppers from miles away.
In addition to great shopping opportunities, Beaverton boasts a long, rich history dating back to the 1840’s, though the city wasn’t officially incorporated until 1893. Beaverton has grown quite a lot since then and has plans for continued growth via annexations of numerous neighboring communities. In 2004 Beaverton announced plans to annex Cedar Hills, Garden Home, Raleigh Hills and West Slope. If the city has its way, eventually the Beaverton boundaries would extend to the Multnomah County line and Northwest Springville Road to the north, to the city of Tigard to the south, to the city of Portland to the east and would follow the Beaverton School District line to the west.
Among Beaverton’s many remarkable features, it surrounds Nike’s 750 acre world headquarters. Though surrounded by Beaverton, Nike’s campus is actually located in unincorporated Washington County. Beaverton is also home to one of Oregon’s largest employers, the high tech firm Tektronix.
Situated within the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District, Beaverton also boasts a seemingly endless number of opportunities for outdoor recreation. In fact, there are over sixty miles of trails connecting Beaverton schools, restaurants, playgrounds and recreation centers to nature. These paths curve around neighborhood streets, dense blackberry thickets and wetlands hidden behind suburban strip malls. With all of these great features, who wouldn’t want to call Beaverton home?
