About the Parks
Often called Salem’s “gem,” Bush’s Pasture Park and Deepwood Estate Gardens encompass 96 acres of significant historic properties, ornamental and formal gardens, and impressive natural resources that include stands of Oregon white oak, camas fields, and Pringle Creek. The expansive open space, trails, ornamental gardens, and stately oaks on these two properties have been loved by many generations of people living in and visiting Salem.
About the Cultural Landscape Management Plan
These two significant, historic properties have not had formal park master plans. To provide community vision and management policies and procedures for the two parks, a
Cultural Landscape Management Plan (CLMP) has been developed. This planning document defines uses and management of different areas of the two parks and will provide guidance on how the properties will be managed and maintained into the future.
