Memorial Park is the City’s oldest and largest park, acquired by the City in 1969, one year after incorporation. The park contains both active and passive use areas, and includes significant natural areas with an extensive trail system. Boeckman Creek bisects the park. Memorial Park also has ½ mile of Willamette River frontage with views from the trail system.
The site contains all of the formal athletic fields owned by the City, which are heavily used by local leagues. Other active recreation facilities at the park include the City’s only skate facility, basketball courts, tennis courts, and a sand volleyball court.
