"Affluent for Beaverton but snobby people"

I lived on this street as a single parent, thinking that it would be a really great place to raise my kids. It looked safe and friendly and successful. Boy was I wrong! I moved in as a single Mother - with three little kids. My youngest was having his 4th birthday right after we moved. I went around the neighborhood introducing myself, and looking for children his age to invite for a casual birthday party. I was interrogated as to my 'love life' and doors were closed in my face. I got the impression that because all the other mothers were married (no one else was single) that they felt 'threatened' by a single, divorced woman.

I felt safe letting my kids play outside because this street is at the end of a long side street (a bit behind Rock Creek elementary school) and its all residential. But the kids in the neighborhood were cliquish and snobby and would be deliberately mean to my kids.. calling them names and pushing them and taking their bikes and breaking them.

The area is really lovely though if you like nature walks... and walking at all. Theres a pond just past the elementary school... along the way to Bethany (Illahe is down the street and across from Westview high school and the Rock Creek Community Church). Its a bit difficult to get out to the main street during high traffic time (commuter traffic) but once you get there, getting onto highway 26 eastbound OR westbound is a piece of cake.

Its also just across the overpass from Tanasbourne so it makes it very convenient for shopping and errands and things.
