Reedville Creek Skate Park Hillsboro Oregon
The Reedville Creek Skate Park, an 18,000 square-foot skateboard facility, opened in 2003. SITE enlisted the help of teens in designing the park. There were two design meetings with the kids, and design ideas were also gathered through their website. With the teen’s input, this facility was built to re-create street skating. It has more of an urban terrain, with street props— re-creating an urban plaza. The park features stairs, rails, a spine ramp, a fun box, a picnic table along with the usual ramps and quarter-pipes. The skate park is free and is open every day from dawn until dusk.
Reedville Creek Park is one of the more diverse parks in Hillsboro, and at seven years old the park is one of the newer ones too.The park is located along Cornelius Pass Road at Francis Street, with Reedville Creek running along the southern edge of the park on its way to Francis Street Park to the west. The land used to be a filbert orchard when the city bought it in 1999.
At almost 10 acres, it is a mid-sized park, but has a lot of amenities packed into that space. There is a traditional playground in the northeast corner along with a plaza that includes a picnic shelter, a restroom, and a fountain. Next to that are a pair of tennis courts, and a little south of the plaza is the centerpiece, the 18,000 square-foot skatepark.
