Brady property added to park

The Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District (THPRD) recently completed purchase of 1.63 acres (plus a house) from the Brady family to enlarge Cedar Mill Park and establish a direct trail connection between the park and Cedar Mill Elementary School.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to acquire this valuable property,” said Doug Menke, THPRD general manager. “It will enable us to provide an increased level of service to patrons in our growing district.”

Cedar Mill Park at 10385 NW Cornell Road currently spans nearly five acres. It has general open space as well as tennis courts and a picnic area.

The new purchase will add about one acre or more to the existing park, nearly all of it wooded. The other approximately half-acre will remain with the existing residence. Future plans include establishing a trail connection between the park, 107th Avenue and Cedar Mill Elementary School.

“When the trail is completed, the children at the elementary school will have a direct, safe route to the park and school instead of having to use Northwest Cornell Road, which as everyone knows is a very busy street,” said Steve Gulgren, superintendent of Planning and Development for THPRD.

The paved trail will be about 1,000 feet long, but before the trail can be built, funding must be secured. Gulgren said THPRD is considering applying for a grant in January to obtain funds to design and construct the trail. If successful, construction could start in late summer of fall 2008 and public use could begin shortly thereafter.

It is wonderful that this beautiful woods has been saved for the community to enjoy. We will report on park plans when more details become available.
