Greenway Park is a much loved and well-used part of the community. It has had a number of additions and changes over the years, but no consistent guiding vision. THPRD started a concept planning process in fall 2017 that included both Greenway Park and adjacent Koll Center Wetlands. Open houses were held on 11/7/17, 3/20/18, and 5/17/18 to better understand the needs and interests of park users.
A final plan was created based on public meeting outcomes, THPRD management, and board of directors feedback in August 2018. The plan (which can be found in the documents section on the right side of this page) will be implemented in phases as funding becomes available.
As of April 2019, progress has been made on the concept plan.
During the current fiscal year we widened and repaved a section of trail near Tuckerwood Court. We added asphalt and drainage to raise the path to the east-west bridge in that area. Staff have also been coordinating with Tigard, Washington County, City of Beaverton, and Clean Water Services to address the crossing of Scholls Ferry Road. These partners will be funding an engineering study to figure out the best location for a signalized road crossing.
In the fiscal year ahead (which starts July 1), we have budgeted $180,000 to support the Greenway Concept Plan. Activities this year include:
$75,000 for design and permitting for replacement of north-south bridge (aka “boy scout bridge”) on north end of the north loop. Construction funds will be requested for the next budget year. This means you could see construction beginning in late 2020.
$30,000 for asphalt repaving near the tractor playground in the center of the park.
$50,000 for trail planning including the crossing of Scholls Ferry Road study and potentially for the design of improvements for the regional north-south trail.
$25,000 for construction of asphalt connectors to amenities along the trail.
Staff will also apply for a Recreational Trails Program grant to design and construct boardwalks in the north loop area.
Staff continue to provide ongoing maintenance services at the park. In our developed areas, this includes mowing, trash removal, asphalt maintenance, playground safety inspections, sport court maintenance, and portable toilet cleaning. In our natural areas, staff continue to remove weeds, respond to wildlife inquiries, as well as monitor and seasonally maintain flow devices to keep the regional trail passable within the park.
Description & Map
Stretching between SW Hall Blvd. and SW Scholls Ferry Rd. at the southern end of the district, 87-acre Greenway Park is a popular, well-traveled park site. Koll Center Wetlands adjoins to the east.
