SW Terwilliger Blvd Parkway

Terwilliger Parkway is a linear park that winds south from downtown Portland along the west hills. It consists of the road itself and about 100 feet of land on either side of the road. The Parkway represents Portland’s early recognition of the value of green spaces within the city, and now provides recreation and relaxation to its many visitors.

Stephens Creek Natural Area

This area is part of the Willamette watershed, one of three major watersheds in southwest Portland. Stephens Creek, a perennial creek with an average depth of 6.5 inches, bisects the park and flows in a NW to SE direction. Portions of the creek above and below the site are culverted as it flows through urbanized southwest Portland. Custer Creek empties into the park from a culvert located just east of the junction of SW Capitol Hill Rd and SW 17 Ave. The confluence of Custer and Stephens Creeks is located within the park, which is valued as a refuge for wildlife and native plants.
