​Secor Park is an undeveloped neighborhood park with a lush wooded area and gently sloping grass meadows. The park is named after former south Salem resident, Ralph Secor in recognition of his partial donation of land that helped to establish the park in 1980.

While considered undeveloped, there are trails and several picnic tables. Come for a walk or a respite, and enjoy the year-round flow of Waln Creek that runs through the site.

Secor Park Implementation Project 

A master plan completed in 1995 envisions future park development with paved walking paths, picnic areas, a children's play area, and a multi-use sports court. Other portions of the park are proposed to be left undeveloped.

To begin implementing this plan, an implementation project is expected to begin 2019. As a first step in the project, the City will work with local residents and other stakeholders to identify park development priorities. This public input is expected to help identify a specific focus for the project. For example, the project may develop a children's play area if that is identified as a top neighborhood priority.
