New parks planned in South Hillsboro!
The City of Hillsboro is working with Pahlisch Homes, Newland Communities, and Greenworks to build the first three neighborhood parks in South Hillsboro. These parks will be located in the Rosedale, Butternut Creek, and Reed's Crossing neighborhoods. Additional neighborhood parks and a community park are slated to be built in South Hillsboro in the future, as additional neighborhoods get developed.

Butternut Creek Neighborhood Park
Butternut Creek Neighborhood Park is adjacent to the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) Corridor, which will have a regional trail along the entire length. We are including design elements in the BPA corridor as part of the Butternut Creek Neighborhood Park Master Plan, although some of these potential amenities may be phased in over time. This property is mostly open field, and can therefore support uses like a basketball court, multiple picnic shelters, a playground, and a nice open lawn area. The BPA Corridor could support amenities like a bike skills course and dog park. Please see below for the location of the park and its master plans.

Rosedale Parks Neighborhood Park
The Rosedale Parks Neighborhood Park is a unique and beautiful property, with many mature trees that will be preserved. Therefore, this neighborhood park is envisioned to have meandering paths through the trees, places for quiet picnics, and nature play elements in addition to a picnic shelter, restroom and small playground area. Please see below for location of the neighborhood park and its master plan.

Reed's Crossing Neighborhood Park
Reed’s Crossing Neighborhood Park is a fairly open property, with a beautiful old oak tree that will be preserved. The park will be located next to an elementary school, and will also have trail connection to the Reed’s Crossing Greenway. This summer, we are soliciting public input at two open houses, which will be held at the Rosedale Elementary cafeteria. The first open house was May 22. The second is scheduled for July 17 from 6 – 7:30 pm. The two initial concept plans are below. The park is scheduled to be developed in 2020.
