Nothing Ever Happens in Sherwood

Nothing ever happens in Sherwood.  The simplicity of that statement resinates in a good way with me and many others who know Sherwood, Oregon and its charming way.

Tonight while watching “The Good Wife” on CBS one of the characters gave a shout out to our small family friendly town.  She said, “I am from Sherwood. It’s outside of Portland. Nothing ever happens in Sherwood.”  

There’s some truth to that, it’s pretty quite here in a good way.  Something us Sherwoodians take great pride in the quaintness of this bedroom community just 25 minutes outside of Portland, Oregon.  A town filled with history, an eclectic bunch of locally owned shops, family restaurants and seasonal farm stores.  We adore our charming Old Town district and the fun summer events that fill it.  It’s even easy to meander the countryside by way of a scenic drive or cycle route – taking in the beautiful rolling hills of fertile farmland and country roads that lead to the wine country.

You’ll find the Sherwood folks are also happy here. That pride is evident in the friendliness of the people and cleanliness of the town with its groomed parks, streets and neighborhoods throughout community.  Not to mention the excellent schools and athletic programs.  We even live up to the “Sherwood” name with an annual Robin Hood Festival and a deep green forest backdrop that our town is nestled within.

More recently there’s been a lot happening in Sherwood with grand openings of several businesses.  You’ll now find Dutch Bros. Coffee, Kohl’s Department Store, Unleashed by Petco, Pizza Hut and Da Mimmo’s Italian Restaurant in Sherwood.  There’s also a lot of new development happening around the city.  Major improvements are being made to the streets of Old Town, to include wider sidewalks in addition to more housing and shops in the near future.

We’re seeing a huge uptick in Sherwood home sales too.  Named by Money Magazine as one of the Best Places to Live in the Nation, many have Sherwood on the top of their list.  Thankfully, Renaissance is under construction on a new subdivision coming soon. “Renaissance at Rychlick Farms” will offer 26 homesites on generously sized lots with European inspired home designs and price points around the $500,000 range.  Located off Edy Road, this neighborhood is walking distance to Sherwood’s newest schools, Edy Ridge Elementary and Laurel Ridge Middle School.  And it’s no surprise this new Sherwood neighborhood will offer greenspace lots reflecting that “Sherwood” feel.

Even better, you can experience Sherwood, Oregon for yourself by taking a virtual visit via our community video!  And if you have any questions about moving to our sweet, yet thriving little town, call us.  We look forward to helping you discover some of the attributes and conveniences that make living here so special, and why we’ve chosen to settle and raise our family here too.

    I enjoy country drives in Sherwood and picking veggies at Grandma’s Place. http://www.tricountyfarm.org/farms/grammas-farm-store

    I once found a small family cemetery from the late 1800s and early 1900s somewhere up near Chapman road. It was the perfect resting place with an unforgettable view of Mt Hood.

    And one time driving up Parrett Mountain Rd, I happened upon a reenactment of the civil war, and not the one between the Ducks and the Beavers. One with real uniforms.

    We love living here in Sherwood. We’ve been a part of the wonderful community for over 10 years. When our boys were younger, being able to walk to the park, then the local library and around Old Town was always enjoyable. When we decided to open SweetStory Bakery, Old Town was the first place we chose. There’s nothing greater than getting to know the people in your community when they come in for a treat!
