Have a question for the project team or a suggestion for the park name?
THPRD construction on Pío Pío Park was completed. Construction included all park amenities according to the Master Plan, approved by the board of directors based on community input. Learn more about this park on the official Pío Pío Park webpage.
The park is officially named Pío Pío Park. Pío Pío (pee-oe pee-oe) is a Spanish word for the chirp chirp sound birds make in the park’s big trees. The name offers all ages a chance to learn that animal sounds are different in different languages. Visitors can listen closely to see if they can hear the birds sing pío pío. Thank you to all our community partners and members who shared input on the park and the new park name.
This park's community garden was funded in part by a grant from the Tualatin Soil & Water Conservation District.

Description & Map
The entire site is relatively flat. The northern end and the southeast corner are covered by a canopy of oaks, firs and ponderosa pine trees, while the remaining property consists of open field. In 2014, the property was acquired by THRPD with 2008 bond measure funds earmarked for new park acquisition.
At this site, F.N. Mitchell became a recognized authority in poultry raising, and later manufactured wire baskets. Mitchell Wire Products produced and shipped up to 50,000 baskets a year to destinations around the world.
The planning phase, shown in this timeline, begins in the Fall of 2017 and will be completed in the Spring of 2018. During this phase, public input will guide the development of the park's master plan. Construction is scheduled for 2020.
