Rivergrove names its newest city park Heritage Park


The city of Rivergrove has recently named its newest park: Heritage Park.

The 3.96 acres of land was acquired by the city with the help of an acquisition grant administered by Oregon Parks and Recreation from state lottery funds.

The land was purchased from a private landowner last May.

Rivergrove is southwest of the Bryant Neighborhood Association.

Heritage Park, located off Dogwood Drive near Sycamore Avenue, is now a nature park and will feature a nature play area for children.

“This is a beautiful addition to the city of Rivergrove. It gives us a wonderful area for children and adults and preserves a significant site for wildlife habitat. We are thrilled to have it,” said Rivergrove Mayor Heather Kibbey.
