Cedar Hills Park Redevelopment
Construction on the Cedar Hills Park redevelopment began in July 2018. The $12.7 million dollar project was primarily funded through a 2008 voter-approved bond measure. Improvements to the park include: a new multi-purpose synthetic athletic field with lights, expanded parking, new play equipment, a new interactive splash pad that is FREE and open to the public during park hours, a community garden space, permanent ADA accessible restroom, new picnic area, shelters, and more. The planning and design of the park redevelopment was guided by public input throughout the process.
The redevelopment of the park coincided with the Beaverton School District’s construction of William Walker Elementary School, located next to the park. The timing provided an opportunity for both agencies to plan and coordinate efforts including shared work on site designs, traffic flow, and more.
Formed in 1955, THPRD is the largest special park district in Oregon, spanning 50 square miles and serving about 250,000 residents in the greater Beaverton area. The district provides year-round recreational opportunities for people of all ages and abilities. Offerings include thousands of widely diverse classes, 95 park sites with active recreational amenities, nearly 70 miles of trails, eight swim centers, six recreation centers, and about 1,500 acres of natural areas.
