Construction has started on Iron Mountain Park and Woodmont Natural Park despite COVID-19 pandemic

While neighborhood playgrounds and sports courts were closed during the governor's executive order amid the COVID-19 crisis — and people were discouraged from visiting parks — construction on big park projects, like Iron Mountain Park and Woodmont Natural Park, carried on as construction was deemed essential.

Construction recently began in both parks and is expected to be completed on-time in October.

There is about 6.5 acres of land at the toe of the slope at Iron Mountain Park that is being developed into a park. Major elements of the proposed park plan include a new stream to help improve water quality, a two-stall restroom, a picnic shelter area, a parking lot and a natural play area for children.COURTESY PHOTO: CITY OF LAKE OSWEGO - Pictured here is the design graphic of Woodmont Natural Park.

Woodmont Natural Park is also receiving a massive facelift, which includes the removal of invasive trees and non-native plants, upgraded trails and a natural interactive play area, with the landscape architecture designed by integrated design firm Mackenzie. After community members expressed concern over the addition of restrooms, no permanent restrooms or their associated utilities will be built at the park.
