Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Team

Just a mile east of downtown Beaverton between SW Canyon Road and Beaverton Hillsdale Highway sits the quaint 8-acre A.M. Kennedy Park.

An ideal neighborhood gathering place and a quintessential open space of the Beaverton area, the park is a blend of native Douglas fir forest, wetlands along Hall Creek, and pristinely developed park and sports amenities you'd expect of Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation District.

In fact, before 2013 the property was almost completely forested, but a 2008 bond measure brought much appreciated facilities including a sports field (baseball and soccer) with bleacher-style seating, a basketball court, a picnic shelter, a playground with swings, a community vegetable garden, and a pedestrian bridge over Hall Creek to connect to SW Laurel Street. The improvements further included the removal of invasive species (primarily English ivy) from the entire property and the planting of native shrubs and plants including snowberry, dull Oregon grape, and sword fern.
