How family friendly are Oregon’s 20 biggest cities?

Estately Blog --- The number of parents opting to start their families in the city has been rising over the last few decades. But choosing which city to call home can be a difficult decision. What makes for a good place to settle down is of course subjective, but at Estately we believe there are a number of objective factors that can help to measure a city’s family friendliness. With this in mind we set out to rank Oregon’s 20 most populated cities* using ten criteria.

According to Estately Blog Medford is ranked the 18th family friendly city in Oregon saying, "Medford  workers don’t spend much time in their cars because Medford has the third shortest commute. However it has the second fewest daycare facilities per capita, a middle range cost of living, and it’s tied with Portland for the highest crime rate."

Estately Blog ranked West Linn the most family friendly city in the state and the city of Gresham came in dead last.
