​The City of Salem is updating the Woodmansee Park Master Plan to review how current park uses can be enhanced and improved, and consider adding new uses and features to undeveloped pockets of the park. 

Woodmansee is a 30-acre community park located at 4629 Sunnyside Road NE. In addition to providing passive and active recreation opportunities, it is also the location of a natural underground aquifer where the City stores drinking water for backup use. As part of the City’s continuing commitment to provide safe and resilient drinking water, the backup water system will soon be improved and expanded. The City saw an opportunity to coordinate the drinking water improvements with the park master plan update that will determine future park enhancements.
