Husen Park improvements nearly complete

Husen ParkJackie Husen Park on Reeves St., just east of 113th, is nearly ready for neighborhood picnics, playground fun and ball practice. Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District (THPRD) subcontractor crews have worked all summer grading, building and seeding lawns. In addition to being a great neighborhood park, this will be a valuable connection on a network of trails from Cedar Mill Park through Jordan Park to the north and, via some on-street connections, to the trail loop around Timberland and the JQA Young property, once that's complete.

The boardwalk we wrote about early last summer, which will provide a viewpoint for Cedar Mill Falls, was delayed. THPRD decided last spring to have the property annexed into Beaverton. Once that transaction was completed, the city has been waiting for a "provider letter" from Clean Water Services certifying that the plans for the boardwalk will not adversely affect the wetland and stream. Hal Bergsma, Director of Planning for THPRD, says the city expects to receive that letter, "within the next couple of weeks. City approval should follow within a month or two. Then they will have to wait until the construction season, about April, to get started. They should be done by July 2011." The community will work with THPRD for a grand opening celebration.
