This project will make creek and trail improvements, including:
The project is planned to reduce erosion, increase water quality, allow better flood passage, and create a safety corridor for pedestrians.
In the heart of Tigard, this 30-plus-acre park consists of natural areas along a stretch of Fanno Creek. The park offers opportunities for trail-oriented recreation; it’s a place to take a quiet walk, enjoy a picnic, view wildlife, and let the hustle-bustle of urban life melt away.
Fanno Creek Park stretches from Main Street in Downtown Tigard to Hall Boulevard and to the Tigard Public Library. There are more than 10 entrances to the park including one through the breezeway at Tigard Civic Center.
The park is part of the Fanno Creek floodplain and mainly consists of grassy and wooded wetlands. Park improvements complement and enhance the natural environment which can be experienced from boardwalks, soft and hard trails, and bridges that transverse the creek. There is a gazebo in the field near the library for small, informal gatherings.
