Naturally Connecting Our Community
In 2015, the community came together to provide a grand vision for trails within Hillsboro called the 2015 Trails Master Plan. At that time, a community based vision was developed for the Crescent Park Greenway (CPG), which was envisioned by the community as an approximately 18-mile natural greenway. Rock Creek Greenway and CPG will eventually encompasses the City of Hillsboro. A greenway is a collection of natural areas, parks, and trailheads connected by linear green space with trails tying them all together.
Read the 2015 Hillsboro Trails Master Plan.
In the 2015 Hillsboro Trails Master Plan, the Crescent Park Greenway vision states, "Crescent Park Greenway is a significant community resource. It couples access to recreation, neighborhoods, employment, and services, in balance with nature, elevating the quality of our daily lives. The Crescent shall complete a greenway loop around the City contributing to a vibrant Hillsboro."
The vision is the basis for the Crescent Park Greenway Concept Plan, which details how the Greenway will look, its function, cost, and development steps. The Concept Plan is the next step in making the greenway a reality for the community and region.
After adoption of the Concept Plan, an implementation planning process will occur. The implementation plan will identity trail locations, funding, and other essential information needed to start greenway development.
