Cedar Hills Park will close for construction
In May 2018, the pedestrian path also will close, and in June, primary construction work will begin, continuing through the summers of 2018 and 2019 before finishing in October 2019. Please note during the closure, fencing will be erected around the park for public safety.
Funded by THPRD’s 2008 voter-approved bond measure, the project will establish a multipurpose synthetic athletic field with lights, a concession stand, a playground with a splash pad, sport courts, a community garden, a new picnic shelter, permanent restrooms, and ADA-accessible features. In addition, the project will enable improved access from the park to the new William Walker School that is also scheduled to open in October 2019.
The road through the park will also provide access to the reconstructed William Walker Elementary School. A traffic signal will be installed at the Huntington Ave. intersection with Cedar Hills Blvd., in a cost-shared project with THPRD and the Beaverton School District. Turn lanes will also be added to Cedar Hills Bl. BSD currently anticipates beginning construction of the road projects in May 2018.
Once the park closes on Jan. 8, a park district contractor will begin removing a number of trees in the park (while leaving the majority alone). This is necessary to create space for new park amenities and will be done with as much care as possible. Fencing will be erected to protect all trees that remain.
If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Matt Kilmartin, THPRD park planner, at 503-629-6305 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
