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.
In August 2019, the City Council adopted an update to the Secor Park Master Plan. The City is now working to develop the park in phases based on available funding. A first phase will be completed in the coming years and is expected to include a bridge across Waln Creek, paved paths, benches and picnic tables, playground equipment, and entry plaza. Fees collected from Parks System Development Charges will fund this work.
