Meeting will shed light on Aloha park plans

Public invited to comment on 20-acre development near Mountain View


The Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District has scheduled a neighborhood meeting next week to discuss the development of a 20-acre community park in Aloha.

The meeting is set for Wednesday, Aug. 27, at 6 p.m. in the gymnasium of Mountain View Middle School, 17500 S.W. Farmington Road.

Staff from the park district's Planning and Development Department will provide an overview of the project, which will create the long-awaited park adjacent to Mountain View. They will also present design options and ask for feedback from the audience.

Attendees will also have the chance to make comments and ask questions.

In addition, the park district will provide translation services as needed for Spanish speakers.

One of the project's key features will be a multipurpose athletic field complex offering side-by-side synthetic turf fields with lights, an adjoining field made of natural grass, and an overlapping baseball diamond with 90-foot basepaths. Through a partnership with the Beaverton School District, both the park district and school district will share use of the facilities.

Other amenities of the new park will include play equipment, a perimeter trail, and picnic facilities. A parking lot, restrooms and other improvements are also part of the design.

In addition, if private funding can be secured, a separate, smaller synthetic turf field will become Oregon’s first “Champions Too” sports facility for special needs athletes. The multipurpose field will be available for others in the community when not in use by special needs athletes.
