Jenkins Estate plan needs volunteers
The Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District Invites the public to share comments on the Jenkins Estate Concept Plan.
The estate is an historical 68-acre estate dating back to the early 20th century. Visitors have enjoyed views of gardens and walking paths with nearly two miles of self-guided trails.
As an update to the original master plan, developed in 1978, the parks district started a concept plan process in summer 2017 to help guide the activities, uses and goals of the estate. The overall goal was to assess the community needs for recreation, historic preservation, natural resource preservation and stewardship, and evaluate future use opportunities.
Staff is nearing completion of the plan and seeks feedback from community members through April 30.
