A Passion for Parks & Playing

The City owns and maintains nearly 200 acres of park land: Memorial Park, the largest park includes a skate park, tennis courts and baseball/soccer fields.

Murase Plaza is a favorite in the community, `its dancing water fountain, multiple picnic areas, children’s playground, and renovated historical barn.

Town Center Park also has a popular water feature and is home to the distinguished Korean War Memorial.  Town Center Park hosts some of the City's major summertime events, including the Rotary's Summer Concert Series, the Festival of Arts, and Fun in the Park.

Willamette River Recreation
Memorial Park is on the north shore of the Willamette River while the Charbonneau District lies directly across the river to the south.  The Willamette River lies literally at our back door and offers boating, fishing, water skiing, kayaking and canoeing opportunities.

Natural and Open Spaces
Wilsonville residents enjoy a wealth and abundance of natural resources and the City takes a pro-active role in protecting and restoring natural areas. Graham Oaks Nature Park, next to the Coffee Lake Wetlands, was designed to bolster habitat essential to our ecological survival. This beautiful area is managed in its natural state and offers walking, biking or wildlife watching opportunities.
