In 1976, the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District purchased this 68-acre Jenkins Estate on the northwest slope of Cooper Mountain overlooking the Tualatin Valley. Tucked into a wooded niche on Cooper Mountain, Jenkins Estate is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Main House is a seven-bedroom structure modeled after a hunting lodge built for the English royal family. The property includes a collection of historic buildings and gardens, preserving a look at the early 20th century genteel lifestyle.
THPRD started a concept plan process in summer 2017 to help guide the activities, uses and goals of the Jenkins Estate. The overall goal was to assess the community needs for recreation, historic preservation, natural resource preservation and stewardship, and evaluate future use opportunities.
We invite guests to take self-guided tours to explore nearly two miles of trails, and breathtaking views of the gardens, the Tualatin Valley and surrounding mountainside.
