During the event, North Clackamas Parks & Recreation District (NCPRD) hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony, RecMobile games and crafts for kids, bluegrass music, food carts and a dessert table with pie provided by New Seasons Market.

NCPRD collaborated with Icon Construction on the $2.9 million park project. Icon donated an estimated $1.2 million in value, while NCPRD funds for the project totaled about $1.7 million, funded largely out of building fees for the developer's nearby 50-home subdivision. County officials said they worked for many years with Icon Construction to identify funding sources to make the complex development and preservation project come together.
