Communities in Hillsboro, Oregon

Highway to Hillsboro

Tucked into the lush and beautiful Willamette Valley, 20 minutes west of Portland and a short hour’s drive from the Pacific Ocean in the heart of the Silicon Forest, sits Hillsboro. Founded in 1842 and incorporated in 1876, Hillsboro was chosen as the county seat for the newly formed Washington County and was based then primarily on agriculture. Today agriculture still plays a key role in the economy of Hillsboro, but the ‘crops’ have greatly diversified with companies like Intel, the largest single site employer in Oregon based in the city.

Big city amenities’ surrounded by nature

Now Oregon’s fifth largest city, Hillsboro enjoys award-winning urban planning, an affordable cost of living, a strong economic base and one of the state’s most diverse populations.  Bordering the Tualatin River and within the city limits you will find Jackson Bottom Wetland Preserve, a 710-acre wildlife preserve, home to many native species of wildlife including red legged frogs, bald eagles and many varieties of migratory birds.

On any given day, you’ll find community events from free concerts and art exhibits to local produce to sports competitions at one of the City’s 28 parks, Civic Center Plaza, Hillsboro Stadium, the county fairgrounds or another local gathering place. In historic downtown Hillsboro and at the award-winning Orenco Station neighborhood, residents enjoy great gathering spaces and farmers’ markets as well as easy access to public transportation. Hillsboro is also home to the Portland metro area’s only professional baseball team—the Hillsboro Hops (Go Hops!).
