Swiftshore Park and open space is 4 acres of riverfront park and open space on the Tualatin River at the end of Swiftshore Drive. The park offers river access, fishing, wildlife viewing, and small turf area for picnicking and games.
Currently, the park is undeveloped and contains a small pond. The pond provides habitat for a variety of land and water animals. The park offers excellent views of Mt. Hood and the bluff above the Sandy River. A viewpoint circle is located in the southeast corner of the park. There is also a 1/2 mile trail/jogging path.
Three foot-bridges cross its waterways, making Summerlake the centerpiece of this park. The lake is home to numerous waterfowl and aquatic animals. This area of open space is interspersed with small wooded areas where you can enjoy the natural surroundings.
Stevens Meadows is an open area with a half mile path that circles the site. This area is also accessed from the small parking area off of Atherton Road. The trails of both sites have moderate elevation gains.
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.
