Parks in Tigard

Jack Park

This 8-acre park is tucked away in north central Tigard. Along with open grassy areas, a small, tree-lined creek bisects the park. A trail and pedestrian bridge over the creek connects the northern section of the park with the southern section and the Walnut Street fire station. 

New Playground Installed at Jack Park

Play structure at Jack ParkContractors worked into the afternoon on Monday, February 12, 2018 to complete installation of a second playground at Jack Park.

The project comes ten years after the purchase of an addition to Jack Park. A new trail and footbridge over Kruger Creek connecting Jack Park to Walnut Street was completed in 2014, but funds were unavailable at the time to purchase and install the new playground. 

The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board prioritized completion of the playground this year and recommended some of the remaining Park Bond funds be used to purchase and install the equipment.

Playground features include a river rock climber, two slides, frog archway (dubbed “Freddie the Frog” by early visitors to the park), and three ShadowPlay trees. These trees create colorful shadows throughout the playground and along the ground. In a nod to Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue’s Station 50 next door, the park includes a Fire Chief’s car.

In 2010, Tigard voters approved a $17 million bond measure to acquire, preserve and protect parks and open spaces.
