Battle Creek Park Master Plan
The City of Salem is preparing a master plan for Battle Creek Park, a large 56-acre undeveloped park property located off Commercial Street in South Salem at the former site of the Battle Creek Golf Course. The site is currently undeveloped, with creeks, wetlands, trees and open space. The property was purchased for both park and flood mitigation functions.
Our goal for the Battle Creek Park master plan is to develop a multi-use park that balances recreational use with flood mitigation and natural habitat. Planning for the park involves coordination with concurrent
stormwater master planning efforts.
The planning process is interactive and community input is highly valued. Public input from two earlier public meetings and over 1,600 online survey responses indicate that people feel strongly about having opportunities to be active, explore nature, and get exercise. Results from the surveys tell us that people want paved and soft-surface trails, open space, new recreation opportunities, and a focus on flood mitigation and natural habitat.

Your feedback is being used to prepare a preferred plan for the Battle Creek Park that balances recreational use and nature with needed flood mitigation. The plan will include flood retention areas, enhanced wetlands, an improved trail system, and new recreational features for the community.
