Within quick driving distance of Troutdale, Gresham and Portland, this is a dog walker's paradise. Great views, an extensive trail system, a huge dog off-leash area, a bird blind and easy mountain biking make this site a quick retreat from the city.
This 61-acre community park provides a vast range of recreation opportunities for the community and visitors. Paved paths lead the way through the different developed and natural areas of the park. Soft-surface paths lead further into wetland and wooded areas around the Tualatin River.
The short Scheckla trail runs through this green space.
This greenway is located on the western edge of the Sandy River. It begins near the confluence of Beaver Creek and extends south along the Sandy River. The greenway is 20.43 acres in size. The site is composed of several parcels of land along the slopes overlooking the Sandy River. Most of the land consists of steep to moderate hillsides and is heavily wooded. Public access is discouraged due to the steep and fragile nature of the slopes. There is one small developed area with a path and picnic table located at 1693 SE Lewellyn Avenue.
This natural area boasts two ponds, a wetland, an upland forest, views and Baker Creek which flows through the park, and a mile and a half of trails and boardwalks. Great for bird watching throughout the seasons. Restrooms facilities available at trailhead. Dogs and bicycles are prohibited within the park.
This city park offers a wide range of recreational opportunities: Fish around the west pond, walk along the nature trail that winds through the park and along the ponds, and view diverse habitats of wildlife and vegetation. There is easy access to the trails from the Reynolds School property, Community Park, or the Target parking lot.
