Many people haven’t caught on yet, to the amazing trail system that is being developed throughout Tigard. The city boasts a plentiful network of paved trails, suitable for pedestrians and bikers, which connects neighborhoods and destinations throughout the city. You can travel almost anywhere, off road and through nature!
Imagine this, a beautiful town with great air quality, low traffic, fun nature education, and safe routes for your child making their way to school. Not only is the city interconnected, forming a friendly and energetic community; but, through Tigard’s Greenway Trails System Master Plan, Tigard’s trails are now beginning to link up to a larger system that joins many of the towns southwest of Portland. And, they continue to expand everyday! The city’s goal? To become known as the “Most Walkable City”.
One of our realtors, Tammie, shares her delightful discover while prepping for a recent open house:
I discovered something very exciting today. I was asked to do an open house in Tigard just SW of Walnut on SW 107th Ct. As I was walking back, after placing my open house sign out at the main road, I noticed a very official looking sign for the City of Tigard Greenways. I knew there was a walking path across the street from our listing, and I simply assumed it was a short little path primarily used by neighbors.
Little did I know……After a bit of research, I identified the path as the Pathfinder Genesis Trail, which is part of the city’s Greenway Trails System Master Plan and connects this area into the Fanno Creek Trail. The Fanno Creek trail system will take you through various neighborhoods, parks and green spaces.
The best part of my discovery is knowing that whoever happens to be the new lucky home owner, will simply be able to step across the street and go for a relaxing walk or even ride their bike up to Denny Road.
I’ll be back this Sunday, August 30th from 2-4 p.m. for another open house. And, I’ll be setting aside some extra time to stroll along this path up to my favorite restaurant, Cafe Allegro, in downtown Tigard for some incredible Cumin Gulf Shrimp Ravioli!
What Fun! I am loving my new discovery of Pathfinder Genesis trailhead at SW 107th Ct.! See you soon at the open house!
OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, August 30th from 2-4 p.m.
12840 SW 107th Ct., Tigard, Oregon
