With much anticipation and years in the making, the Bull Mountain Park is another step closer to becoming a reality. On June 24, 2016, in the quiet, secluded, wooded area tucked in on Bull Mountain, the Friends of Bull Mountain Park celebrated the groundbreaking of Tigard’s first Nature Play Park at 13950 SW Alpine Crest Way. The park swathed in wildflowers with a summer drizzle and flanked by enormous climbing logs, the groundbreaking ceremony commenced with donors, officials from the City of Tigard and Metro, FBMP Board Members, and neighbors for the Golden Shovel event.

We are as busy as ever now with the main projects of the park, including the picnic shelter, nature play and ADA trails. Current activities include finalization of the park design, submittal of an amendment to NIN Metro Grant and other grants, and bid requests to contractors. Plus, we are working with the City of Tigard to start the preconstruction process, including submitting all necessary permit applications. The window of opportunity before the rainy season is closing fast, but we are hoping to start construction in the fall. There are so many variables at this point, but we remain optimistic.
