West Linn Parks and Recreation Department staff consider sunny winter days to be highly prized occasions in the Pacific Northwest, a rare canoodle of warmth on your exposed face inviting you outdoors. Say “yes” to the beckoning of the dazzling sun by visiting one of West Linn’s most versatile parks.

Fields Bridge Park spans nearly 20 acres along the banks of the beautiful Tualatin River; offering so much with its seasonal waterfall view, paved trails, baseball fields, an accessible fishing platform, community gardens, basketball court, a memorial fire pit, playground and restroom, and a one-of-its-kind Meteorite Interpretive Trail. A new permeable paver parking lot was completed on the northwest end of the property recently.

Plans for 2015 include the addition of two smaller and one larger picnic shelters. Additionally, a proposed interpretive plaza would be located in the footprint of the old home inspired by the architecture charter of the original house. Improved pathways and access to the river for launching kayaks and canoes will complete the park.

Fields Bridge Park is located at 821 Willamette Falls Drive. For more information about the other West Linn parks, visit www.westlinnoregon.gov.
