​About the park

Eagle's View Park is a 5-acre neighborhood park located at 451 Eagle's Wing Street NW. The park is currently undeveloped, but a soft trail and picnic tables were recently added to the site.

Community opportunities

Your input is important to us. The third and final public planning workshop was held February 26, 2020 and a preferred alternative design was revealed.  There are three more opportunities for your input as the Eagle’s View Park draft master plan moves toward adoption.

Next steps

The draft park master plan was presented to the West Salem Neighborhood Association  on May 18, 2020 via a Zoom online platform and the WSNA Board endorsed the plan. The draft master plan will continue on to the Salem Parks and Recreation Advisory Board (SPRAB) on June 11, 2020. The recommendations from WSNA and SPRAB will carry forward to City Council as it considers adoption of the park master plan.

To help slow the spread of COVID-19 and reduce opportunities for continued transmission of the Coronavirus, including limiting gatherings of 50 or fewer people, the new dates of these meetings will be determined at a later date and the web page will be updated accordingly. Those who are on the email update list will receive notification of upcoming meetings as these dates become available. To sign up for email updates, please visit the following link:

Public Workshop Summaries

The Eagle's View Park master plan process began with three public visioning workshops with the neighbors living near the park. Below are summaries from of those meetings.

Workshop #1

On November 20, 2019, staff held the first public visioning workshop. The workshop featured a presentation about the park and the master planning process, opportunities to address questions, and an interactive activity for attendees to share their thoughts on priorities for future park development. An online survey was available until December 4, 2019 for those unable to attend the public meeting. The input received informed the two alternative designs to be reviewed at workshop #2.

Workshop #2

On January 15, 2020, the second public visioning workshop revealed two alternative designs based on comments received from the first workshop and the first online survey. The neighbors reviewed and selected their preferred alternative and provided additional comments. Both a hard copy and online survey asking for a preferred alternative and additional comments were available until February 1, 2020. The comments received from the second workshop and from the second survey provided the information needed to form a preferred design alternative. This was presented at the final workshop on February 26, 2020.

Workshop #3

On February 26, 2020, the third and final public planning workshop was held to review the preferred alternative plan for Eagle's View Park and to hear about the next steps for the master plan.

One change was made to the preferred alternative following the third meeting. Instead of three practice disc golf baskets, there are now two practice baskets shown on the draft master plan. The reason is because the Salem Comprehensive Park System Master Plan allows for only two practice baskets in neighborhood park facilities. This change will be communicated as the draft master plan moves forward in the adoption process.

The preferred alternative is now the draft master plan and moves forward to the West Salem Neighborhood Association for endorsement in the next phase of the public planning process.
