This project will connect and develop 7.5 acres of park and natural area parcels in an underserved part of Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District. The new neighborhood park will primarily serve local neighborhood needs. This planning process will determine how to provide the best improvements while respecting the nature of the site.
As a part of this process, THPRD will work closely with neighbors and the broader parks community to ensure that the design and amenities provided within the new park are considerate of public needs and concerns.
Consider spending some time with your family prior to the meeting to discuss the park and what you would like to see at the new play area. Children are welcome to attend and participate at the meeting.
For community members unable to attend the neighborhood meeting, an online survey is available in English and Spanish through December 14th to provide their choices for play equipment.
This new park will be located within a mixed-density residential neighborhood in the Aloha area of Washington County.
The site is composed of three properties located west of SW 170th Ave and north of SW Merlo Rd. The properties form a forested buffer around a small creek that flows through the neighborhood from the northeast to the southeast.
Parcel A is located to the southwest of the Crowell Woods Natural area. As with Crowell Woods, future amenities on this property will be limited by the presence of existing trees and required setbacks from the creek.
The Crowell Woods Natural Area is a small, undeveloped parcel that connects Parcel A and Parcel B. It is accessed via a footpath and bridge off of SW Beaver Court. Future amenities on this property will be limited by required setbacks from the creek.
Parcel B is located in the northeast corner of the planning area. This is the largest of the three properties and will be best suited to any "active" park amenities such as play and picnic areas, though it may also be used as a natural area. This property currently includes a private residence and is not open to public access at this time.
