History

In 1955, upon the request of City Park Superintendent Walter Wirth, the Utilities Department agreed to the use of its Fairmount Hill Reservoir property as a neighborhood park. The purchase of 12 additional acres of open space and wooded land overlooking the Willamette River was made in the late 60's. A HUD Open Space and Willamette Greenway grant reimbursed the City 75% of the acquisition cost.
