Fanno Creek Park
Fanno Creek Park is the largest park in Tigard's downtown area. The park and
Fanno Creek Trail generally follow the contours of Fanno Creek. In 2002, when the
land for the new library was purchased, some of the property was used to expand
the 30-acre park which extends from Main Street through the Tigard Public Library site
on Hall Boulevard. The park can be accessed to the north of the library, to the
south of city hall, and from the south end of Main Street.
This park consists of wooded and open areas, flood plain, and several small ponds.
Park amenities include: picnic tables, benches, a gazebo, an elevated viewing deck,
and trails including four bridges which transverse the creek. Non-native vegetation
was recently cleared and many sections of the park were replanted with native trees
and shrubs which provide better habitat for the park's abundant wildlife.
Walkers, bicyclists, and nature lovers all share this park via the Fanno Creek Trail.
Portions of the trail run through the park from Main Street to Hall Boulevard and
along Fanno Creek on the library site. When completed, the Fanno Creek Trail
will extend from Portland, through Beaverton and Tigard to Tualatin. Much of
the trail from Hall Boulevard north is already complete.
