Advantages of Ridgefield
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Ridgefield is the fastest growing city in Washington state… again.
Not only is Ridgefield one of the fastest growing towns in Clark County, it’s also becoming one of the most desirable. In fact, according to a 2015 census, Ridgefield was the fastest growing city in Washington State, with a 9 percent population growth.
It’s not hard to see why: a bustling downtown area, coupled with wide open spaces and thriving school district, make Ridgefield an ideal place for young families to put down roots. With readily available land for residential and economic growth, Ridgefield is positioned for even more growth.
The Cedar Creek community already has home plans available in Ridgefield and is planning another community, Seven Wells Estates, for the near future. Let’s take a closer look at what makes Ridgefield so attractive.
Even though many residents are moving to Ridgefield to escape the hustle and bustle of Portland or Vancouver, there still needs to be a place to enjoy community events, fine dining, and shopping. The area is also located on the banks of Lake River, making the downtown area a hub for many outdoor activities as well.
The Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge is located just across the river from the downtown area. The refuge is situated in such a way that nature lovers can kayak or canoe along a 21-mile water trail, or walk along the many land trails, and still be minutes away from a delicious lunch.
Throughout the year, the City of Ridgefield offers several events. First Saturdays offer art showings, kids activities, music, and something for everyone in the family. A Farmers Market is open for the spring, summer and fall, and other annual affairs, such as a Cruise-In, Fourth of July celebration, and Oktoberfest, are happening nearly every month.
