ALERT: THPRD continues to move forward with Bonnie Meadow area park with PHASE 1 of construction: removing various trees from the site per the project’s Master Plan, which was drafted and approved in 2018 based on community input. This work will take place in January 2020. During this time, the area will be closed to the public.

Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District is developing this new 2.5-acre park in the Aloha-Reedville area. Upon completion in 2020, this park will serve thousands of underserved residents in a diverse, mixed-density residential neighborhood.
Approved Master Plan
A neighborhood open house to review the draft preferred master plan was held in June of 2018 and the Board of Directors approved the preferred master plan on August of 2018. THPRD is currently in the process of finalizing the park’s construction documents, and site permits have been submitted to Washington County. THPRD anticipates advertising for construction bids in early February for construction in the spring of 2020. Construction is currently scheduled to be finished in the fall of 2020. (See the TIMELINE tab below for more info on the park’s timeline.)
Community input was an essential component of our planning and design process. We engaged local park neighbors and other district residents to ensure that this park's master plan was informed by the community's needs, desires and concerns.
The approved master plan is available to view in the DOCUMENTS & MEDIA in the column on the right side of this page.

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.
