Lowami Hart Woods -- trail improvements
Project Summary & Public Benefits
THPRD completed an extensive public outreach and master planning process for Lowami Hart Woods Park in 2001, at which time the THPRD Board of Directors directed preparation of a final draft master plan for the park by staff. The 2001 master plan layout can be viewed on this web page in the "Document Center" to the right. Through additional public outreach in 2010-2011, a revised master plan was developed. In October 2011 the THPRD Board of Directors approved the revised master plan by adoption of a resolution; the 2011 approved master plan can be viewed on this web page in the “Document Center” to the right. Funding available through the voter-approved 2008 THPRD Bond Measure has made it possible to make site improvements identified in the 2001 and subsequent 2011 master plan.
Lowami Hart Woods opened to the public in January 2014
Lowami Hart Woods, a 27.75 acre natural area in the heart of Beaverton, is open to the public for use. Lowami Hart Woods has both hard-surface and soft-surface trail improvements winding through the dense forest and along South Johnson Creek that flows through this park. There is a new parking lot, an entry plaza where an information kiosk will be located, new pedestrian bridges that cross over the creek, and a viewing area along the new ADA loop trail. Also in the middle of the site, near the original Campfire Girls flagpole that still remains, there is a Gathering Area with natural log benches that will provide a place for nature education classes and much more.
THPRD invites you to take a stroll through this beautiful site and enjoy all it has to offer the community.
