Boones Ferry Park Master Plan Public Meeting Set for June 5

Wilsonville-Logo-News

The Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a public meeting at Boones Ferry Park on Tuesday, June 5, 6 pm, to solicit final public input on the Boones Ferry Park Master Plan, which develops a community vision for the park that best suits Wilsonville’s current and future needs.

Informed by engagement with community stakeholders at two workshops and via online survey, the Boones Ferry Park Master Plan draft was developed with GreenPlay, LLC, a Colorado-based firm with extensive experience researching and developing master plans for parks throughout the United States.

The plan’s purpose is to advise City Council and Parks and Recreation staff how Boones Ferry Park currently functions, and to guide future park improvements. Recommendations in the draft plan would enhance the park with new active amenities and improve its access to the Willamette River.

Currently, the seven-acre park in Wilsonville’s Old Town neighborhood includes a playground, an open lawn area and a basketball court.  The park is also home to the Tauchman House, a popular location for City-sponsored programs and private rentals.  

The master plan guides development of four acres of forested waterfront property to the east, three undeveloped acres to the west (between the railroad tracks and Boones Ferry Road) and three forested acres to the north.  The plan also accounts for the possible installation of the French Prairie Bridge, which would provide pedestrians and cyclists passage over the Willamette River.

The Boones Ferry Park Master Plan is scheduled to be presented to the Planning Commission and City Council for consideration this summer.
