Sherwood offers a wealth of amenities and activities to please every lifestyle and is home to multiple points of interest. For example, the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge is a 1,358 acre wetlands and lowlands sanctuary with nearly 5 miles of wildlife interpretive trails open to the public.
