Wilsonville has 12 public parks, containing 3 shelters, totaling more than 235 acres and is in close proximity to many state, regional and county park facilities which are located within easy driving or boating distance. (Visit the City's Online Mapping site to find a park near you.)
The park system has well distributed neighborhood parks and a wide array of recreational amenities. Throughout the city’s history, there has been well-planned land use and strong efforts to maintain balance between development and the preservation of open spaces, trees, creeks, wetlands and habitat areas. The varied terrain offers a unique opportunity to access creeks, wetlands and wooded areas for education, outdoor recreation, not to mention the scenic beauty of the area.
The future of Wilsonville’s parks system is bright. There are a number of exciting developments planned in the near future that will greatly enhance the Wilsonville parks system. Additions to the system include large urban parks, neighborhood parks, trails and natural area experiences.
Metro’s 230-acre Grahams Oak Natural Area will be improved with passive use trails, access points, natural resource restoration and interpretive graphics. This natural area will provide outdoor classroom activities for Wilsonville students and will offer visitors an opportunity to experience the beauty of nature close to home.
Residential development at Villebois will bring trails and greenways, neighborhood parks, an urban plaza, tree groves, wetlands, open spaces and pocket parks. The Villebois Greenway will connect regionally significant open spaces in Coffee Creek Wetlands and the Graham Oaks Natural Area forming the first section of the Tonquin Regional Trail. Future school development will provide sports fields, and Villebois will provide other active recreational opportunities resulting in a complete community.
With all of these upcoming developments in parks and natural areas, the future is clean, green, safe and connected.
