Wrex Cruse Park

Occupying a hillside on the western edge of the Willamette Valley, this undeveloped park offers scenic valley views. A grove of Oregon white oak crowns the hillside, and the chapparel understory provides excellent bird habitat. In the future, it may offer outstanding picnic opportunities in the County's northern wine country.

Willamette River Water Treatment Plant Park

The Willamette River Water Treatment Plant Park was built in conjunction with the City's water treatment plant on the Willamette River. This award-winning park was created through a community design process and includes opportunities for education and interpretation. The site includes a meeting room, interpretive features about the City's water system, and a beautiful water feature (not intended for water play) that is the park's focal element. The meadow in the park is composed of native grasses that have lower water use and require minimal mowing.
