Secor Park is an approximately 8.5-acre, undeveloped neighborhood park with a lush wooded area, gently sloping grass meadows, and an upper reach of Waln Creek. 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, trails and a picnic table are available for use. Come for a walk or a respite, and enjoy the trees, birds, and year-round flow of Waln Creek.
Secor Park Improvement Project
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.
The City is currently preparing for a development project that will implement portions of the park master plan. Due to the age of the plan, we are seeking input from local residents on the design of this project.
Feedback from an initial public survey indicates that residents are interest in adding recreational elements while also preserving and enhancing natural features within the park. With this input, the project consultants prepared three design concepts that show a range of potential changes to the park.
The project team presented and reviewed these concepts at a public workshop held on April 3, 2019 and through a public survey that ran through April 17, 2019.
Public feedback is now being used to prepare a single project design concept. A draft of this design concept will be presented and discussed at an open house on Wednesday, May 15, 2019.
