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 preferred option was prepared after hearing from the community through a series of public open houses and online surveys. It balances recreational use with needed flood mitigation and includes flood storage areas, enhanced wetlands, an improved trail system, and new recreational features for the community.
Comments are welcomed as we move toward adoption of a final master plan by City Council in late February or early March 2020. Input can be emailed to
[email protected] or mailed to Patricia Farrell, 555 Liberty ST SE, Room 325, Salem, OR 97301.
What We’ve Heard
While floodplain mitigation is the top priority for park master plan implementation, we’ve heard that habitat enhancements, walking trails, and a disc golf course also rank highly among those that attended the project open house on November 13, 2019.
Public input from two earlier public meetings and over 1,600 online survey responses indicates 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.
