The streets of Sherwood's Old Town were filled with music, dance, music and the sound of thousands of people on Saturday, June 3. The old fashioned community parade snaked through the city, with a variety of bands, floats, food trucks, vendors and of course a parade. High honours have been won by local football, basketball, baseball and football teams, as well as a number of other local organisations.
Sherwood is also connected to other Yamhill County (24) locations within the boundaries of the TriMet District. The Wes Commuter Train stops in both Tualatin and Tigard, which is really close to catching someone if you live in Sherwood. The Max light rail will arrive in Tigarded in 2020, as will a new light rail line.
The present name was given in 1891 by the local businessman Robert Alexander, who probably named it after him. According to the post office, Alexander was from Sherwood, Michigan, and also said that the forest around the city was the "Sherwood Forest" in England. The first covered wagon to cross the Willamette River (1844) was in the park. Alexander had been to Sher Wood in Michigan, and according to the Post's records, he also said that "the forest that surrounds this city is the Sher Forest of England" and that it is part of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North America.
When settlers arrived in large numbers from European countries, Oregon City became the end of the Oregon Trail. Highway 99 became a busy intersection and Sherwood became one of the main access points to the Willamette River and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Today, it is the second largest city in Oregon after Portland, with a population of about 2,000 people. The city's population, about 1,500 people, accounts for 79 percent of its estimated value.
The location also makes it attractive to professionals commuting to Portland for work and returning to the quiet Sherwood community. The proximity of the city to the Willamette River and Great Smoky Mountains National Park encourages residents to take advantage of every day of retirement.

The town is located in the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge, a national wildlife refuge in Oregon, Oregon and Washington.

When the first settlers arrived in Sherwood, Oregon, there were not many Native Americans left, and many of them died of disease. It was the same sad story across the country: The indigenous people were resettled in reserves, because they owned the land exclusively. The resettlement process was led by Superintendent of Indian Affairs Joel Palmer, who has been heavily criticised for his treatment of the indigenous people. American citizens have been moved from their homes to the reserves to give them "exclusive ownership" of land.
