Cedar Hills Park Expansion
The Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District has purchased about 1.7 acres from the Beaverton School District. The property on the west side of William Walker Elementary School at 11940 SW Lynnfield Lane is adjacent to the park and will be used to expand and improve the park. THPRD and school district leaders signed an intergovernmental agreement last year that addresses shared access, shared parking and other issues besides the property sale. THPRD’s plan includes two full-size, multipurpose, synthetic turf sports fields with lights; a splash pad water play area; play equipment; permanent restrooms; a picnic area; walking path; and a community garden. Redevelopment will be funded by THPRD’s 2008 voter-approved bond measure. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in early 2016 and finish by Spring 2017.
