Robinwood Park is WL hidden gem
West Linn Parks and Recreation is proud of the variety of parks available for use by the community. Robinwood Park, located at 3600 Fairview Way in West Linn, is a prime example.
Robinwood Park is a verdant 15-acre property with seven acres developed and the rest as natural open space. Park features include a playground, open turf area, basketball court, restrooms, walking trails and small skate park. The skate area has a rail, grind box, quarter pipe and bank.
This park also boasts one of the city's five spray parks.
While the park celebrated a grand opening in 2011 it is still a lesser known park.
Vehicle access is from the end of Fairhaven Way, contributing to a more secluded feeling and absence of traffic noise.
This park is recommended for reflective walks, honing your skate skills and keeping cool in the summer.
Additional spray parks are located at Hammerle Park (1505 Lewis St.), Marylhurst Heights Park (1800 Valley View Drive), Tanner Creek Park (3456 Parker Road) and Willamette Park (1100 12th St.).
Spray parks are operational Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Until school is out for summer break Hammerle Park will only be operational on weekends.
Please note that bicycles, skateboards, scooters and dogs are not allowed on the spray pads.
