Community 'grateful' for county's care of Boring park
Boring Station Trailhead Park received some needed TLC on Feb. 4. Clackamas County Parks staff visited the small park, located neighboring Boring's downtown core, to replace fencing that had been damaged.
When the fencing and nearby parking stops were installed initially, the stops were placed too close to the fence, leading to drivers contacting the fence when parking, according to Thomas Gray of Clackamas County Parks.
To prevent damages from happening in the future, staff members not only replaced the fencing, but installed new parking stops at an appropriate distance from the fence.
Tom Riggs, Clackamas County Parks Operations Manager, told the community that "Clackamas County has been involved with several improvements at the Boring Station Trailhead Park since it became a county park after it was developed by a group of Boring citizens."
One of the most major improvements was the 2018 construction of the covered picnic area.
"The people of Boring are blessed to have such a park for our families and friends to enjoy," said Boring resident Steve Bates. "We should all be grateful to the dozens of Boring citizens who worked during the late 1990s and early 2000s to develop this park for all of us to enjoy. We should also be grateful for the people of the Clackamas County Parks Department as they take great care of our park."
