Foothills Park is a nine-acre park on the Willamette River waterfront. Completed in 2006, the park is part of the Oswego Iron Heritage Trail and is built on the location of a former pipe foundry site. A raised and covered platform constructed from salvaged iron industry materials provides sweeping views to the north and south of the river. Park amenities include a large grass amphitheater that hosts Wednesday evening concerts in July, a riverfront pathway, a picnic pavilion with a stone fireplace, a bocce ball area, natural areas and wireless internet access. The park’s pathway is named in recognition of William Stafford, Poet Laureate of Oregon and winner of the National Book Award in 1963. Basalt columns etched with his poems can be found at the north end of the path. For more information, visit the City of Lake Oswego Parks & Recreation website.
