Timberland Park improvements to be celebrated at July 13 concert

Thurs., July 13, 6 pm, Timberland Park, 11620 NW Stone Mountain Lane

Trashcan Joe

The free concert, featuring Trashcan Joe, will begin at 6 pm at the park. During the 7 pm intermission, a brief dedication ceremony with spoken remarks and ribbon-cutting will be held. The band will then return to the stage and play until the 8 pm conclusion.

THPRD will offer free cake and several door prizes, including tickets to the district’s Aug. 19 Groovin’ on the Grass concert with Quarterflash, Curtis Salgado and Nu Shooz. The THPRD Rec Mobile and Nature Mobile will provide fun activities for children starting at 6 pm. In addition, park district employees will have an information table where guests can ask questions.

Timberland splashpad

Timberland businesses will have a presence: Market of Choice, Ava Roasteria, Sofi at Cedar Hills, and The Ackerly. The Cedar Mill News will be there too. Food will be available from Saigon Bowl and Retrolicious.

Timberland Park is located right across the street from the new middle school built by the Beaverton School District (currently functioning as host to BSD schools whose facilities are being rebuilt).  Highlights include a splash pad water feature, play equipment, public plaza with seating and drinking fountain, and an open lawn area for picnicking and play. The park is small—limited parking is available on-street in the neighborhoods.

Timberland park sites

There are many more recreational amenities in the Timberland community, most of which THPRD owns, operates and maintains. These include additional playgrounds and picnic areas, trails, greenways with creeks and wetlands, and an all-accessible elevated boardwalk and viewing deck that overlooks the historic Cedar Mill Creek Falls, adjacent to the historic JQA Young House. Altogether, the parks and trails encompass nearly 20 acres.

Polygon Northwest created the amenities while developing Timberland, which was built on the former Teufel Nursey site. The development features a variety of housing and a shopping center. The company subsequently transferred ownership, operation and maintenance of the features to THPRD, per their “in lieu of fees” agreement with the district.

“We’re pleased with how everything turned out,” said Doug Menke, THPRD general manager. “It looks good, and we’re confident our residents will enjoy using all the amenities for years to come.”
