Beaverton Oregon Parks: Forest Glen Park in the Greenway Neighborhood

Normally I will say something at least a little good about all the Beaverton, Oregon, parks I visit in Beaverton, Oregon, but I can’t do this on this park. Forest Glen Park is a little “park” that I think was a flag lot that was given back to the city after it was foreclosed on for non-payment of taxes, and they just decided to put a sign up instead of trying to do something else with it.

There is no playground equipment, no bathrooms, no picnic beaches or even a place to sit. This is what I call a lawn that has had a sign put out front. Now, there is a creek, but unless you go through some brush to get to it, it really isn’t accessible either.

Families, kids, who ever is looking to go to a park, should just avoid this park and sit on your front lawn as it would be just as good as this park. If you are looking for a good park to go to in the Greenway Neighborhood of Beaverton, Oregon, I suggest you check out Greenway Park.

Todd,

Maybe the city of Beaverton needs a little prodding for one of its citizens to have something done to the park?

I LOVE THIS LITTLE PARK!

A place for a couple of kids to simply play catch.

A place for a dad to take his son to break in a new baseball glove withou annoying folks at picnic tables.

A place for a mom and dad to take the 5 year old  to look for four leaf clovers.

A place that isn't draining the municipal taxes for maintenance, insurance and equipment.

A small public place to lay on a blanket and read a good book.

Take your trash with you when you leave.

Not all public places need to be a drain on the taxpayers.

Don - Maybe, just maybe!

Lenn - Ever the optimist...There is a reason I like you. The only problem with catch is at one end water at the other end of this very small park is a very busy street that if my son misses the ball, I wouldn't want him running out in the street. But, the rest of the stuff.

YOU WIN! I can't argue with any of it! (Sorry City of Beaverton)

Water?  Water?  What kind of water?  If it's the photo above, what a wonderful place to catch crayfish or helgramites for fish bait.  Water produces natural wonders that can never be found on a front lawn.

Some of the out of the way parks that aren't so popular can be a fun afternoon of investigation of young kids. Way to set him straight Lenn.

My kids would be thrilled for all of about 30 minutes here. There are so many great places to visit. This is a good one for mediation.

Lenn - I love you! I wouldn't let my kids touch that water. (LOL) Even my 4 year old looked at it and said "Yuck, can we go somewhere else" But, yes I do believe there are Crayfish in there somewhere, but you have to be able to get to the water. It isn't that easy and I'm not even sure it is legal to go to the water because you have to walk over plant life to do it.

Terry - Yes, Lenn is setting me straight, but my family still won't be going back.
