Vietnam Veterans of Oregon Memorial

Inspired by the dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, in 1982, a group Oregon Vietnam veterans conceived of the idea of a veterans memorial in Oregon. Through the efforts of many volunteers on behalf of the Vietnam Veterans of Oregon Memorial Fund, the memorial was dedicated in 1987.

The curved black granite wall lists the names of all Oregon residents who died in Vietnam or who are missing in action. The wall also chronicles three years of the conflict and concurrent local events, providing a poignant contrast.

Address: 
4000 SW Canyon Rd. Portland, OR 97221

Tickle Creek Park

Tickle Creek Park is an undeveloped neighborhood park that winds along Tickle Creek. It is a natural, forested area included as part of the Tickle Creek greenway. Plans are underway to develop a path along Tickle Creek between Highway 211 & 362nd Ave that will eventually connect to the Springwater Corridor Trail.

Address: 
The entrance is located just east of 362nd and south of Dubarko Rd.
