Located between SW Canyon Road and SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway in Raleigh Hills, 16-acre Raleigh Park offers a wide variety of recreational opportunities.
A 25-yard outdoor pool, open during the summer season, is the highlight of this park. It also includes a volleyball court (seasonal), a playground and swing set, a horseshoe pit, and picnic tables. The play area features a water pump and dirt area for kids to get a little dirty.
A paved trail extends from the west side of the park to the east side, through grassy hills and trees.
The park is also home to one of THPRD’s newest features: a nature art installation. As part of the Nature Revealed: Discovering Nature Through Artproject, artist Adam Kuby installed a series of granite stones that will show over time the process of tree growth.
Two “geology stones” - one along the trail on the north side of the tennis courts and the other in the trees on the east side of the park - will demonstrate geologic processes; tree growth over time will shift the granite stones in relation to each other. (Kuby installed similar stones at Greenway Park.)
Raleigh Park can be accessed from a parking lot on SW 78th Ave., from a trail leading from the West Slope Library and Raleigh Park Elementary School, and a trail entrance from SW Ridgewood Ave.
THPRD is in the midst of a development plan to Improve Raleigh Park. Click here for more information.
