Progress Quarry Lake

Progress Lake is a reclaimed quarry that is now used for fishing and wildlife watching in south Beaverton. Covering approximately 11 acres, the lake is a regular stop-off location for waterfowl moving through our area. A fountain and fishing dock along the southeastern lake edge offer places to relax and recreate next to the new Progress Ridge Town Square, a shopping and entertainment center.

Powers Marine Park

Powers Marine Park is a natural area with paths and picnic areas. The park was named after Ira Powers, owner of Powers Furniture Company, who lived in Dunthorpe. Around the time of the Depression, he and other real estate associates gave this strip of land between Macadam Ave and the Willamette River to the City for the extension of Terwilliger Blvd past what is now Tryon Creek State Park. 

Fishing and launching paddle-craft is allowed here.
