Project Summary & Public Benefits

This project encompassed redeveloping the existing community park near downtown Beaverton. The 2008 bond allowed THPRD to draw a first-ever master plan for the 10-acre Schiffler Park.

The master plan includes many new and updated additions such as play equipment with natural surfaces and textures, two picnic areas, pathways, gardens, athletic areas, a basketball court, a skate spot and a pavilion.

The new pavilion fulfills a recent Land and Water Conservation Fund grant award.

Because the park also envelops a wetland, habitat restoration will occur, as will  construction of wetland overlook areas.

Update

The 10-acre site in central Beaverton features a half-mile of paved walkways and a boardwalk surrounding a two-acre wetland area with restored habitat and overlooks for better views. Other amenities include play equipment, two picnic shelters, community gardens, a basketball court and a skate spot.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please contact us using the THPRD Web contact form.

Evelyn Schiffler Park is located at 5495 SW Erickson Ave. in Beaverton.
