Wilsonville has 15 public parks, containing three reservable shelters, five sports fields, the historic Stein Boozier Barn and totaling just under 200 acres. They are in close proximity to many state, regional, and county park facilities, which are located within easy driving or boating distance.
The park system has well distributed neighborhood parks and a wide array of recreational amenities. Throughout the city’s history, there has been well-planned land use and strong efforts to maintain balance between development and the preservation of open spaces, trees, creeks, wetlands, and habitat areas. The varied terrain offers a unique opportunity to access creeks, wetlands, and wooded areas for education and outdoor recreation, not to mention the scenic beauty of the area.
There are a number of exciting developments planned in the near future that will greatly enhance the Wilsonville parks system.
Residential development at Villebois will bring trails and greenways, neighborhood parks, and pocket parks. The Villebois Greenway will connect regionally significant open spaces in Coffee Creek Wetlands and the Graham Oaks Natural Area forming the Tonquin Regional Trail.
Additionally, future development will provide sports fields at school sites, as well as a 10 acre park planned south of Advance Road.
