Staff and Landscape Architect consultant, ESA presented two master plan alternatives at two Neighborhood Meetings held on 5/23 and 5/24.
Overall, the comments received at the meetings and from the on-line comment form indicated that a combination of the two plans is favored and should be developed as a draft preferred master plan. ESA has developed that plan and it is posted on the right side of this page. The draft preferred master plan and a project update was presented to the board of directors on June 12th.
An Open House to review the draft preferred master plan is scheduled for Wednesday, June 27th at 6 pm and will be held at the Howard M. Terpenning Recreation Complex, Dryland Conference Room, 15707 SW Walker Rd, Beaverton, OR 97006. The public is welcome to attend.
The two alternative master plans and the draft preferred master plan are available in the document section on the right side of this page.
Help us develop your new neighborhood park!
Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District is developing a 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.
Community input is an essential component of our planning and design process. We will thoughtfully engage with park neighbors and other district residents to ensure that this park's master plan is informed by the community's needs, desires and concerns.
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.
