*The Bluffs Park -- Phase II
Project Summary & Public Benefits
In 2003, the District approved a Master Plan for The Bluffs Park, and in 2004, implemented Phase I of the plan, which consisted of installing play equipment and building a gravel trail, providing access from Haskell Court.
Using funds from the 2008 bond measure, THPRD began implementing Phase II of the Master Plan. Phase II included connecting South Drive to the play equipment with an asphalt trail, replacing a temporary trail built in 2009, and adding landscaping, signage and storm water filtering.
The new paved pathways connecting South Drive to the play equipment are surrounded by new landscaping, adding beautiful views for visitors.
To view the approved master plan for Phase II, please check the "Document Center" on the right side of this page. As always, if you have any questions/comments, we would like to hear from you. Please contact Melissa Remick via email, at 503/629-6305 or by using THPRD's web contact form.

Based on concerns expressed by park neighbors it was concluded that the following design changes would be made:
• Narrow the asphalt path width from 6 feet to 5 feet, but retain the gravel base of 8 feet.
• Remove the proposed plaza and benches from the south end of the trail at South Drive to address concerns expressed by the adjacent property owners about loss of privacy.
• Use the savings from the removal of the plaza and narrowing of the paved trail to provide additional landscape plantings to screen adjacent property owners from the trail.
