Planning the Future of Washington County’s Parks

Washington County Parks manages over 2500 acres of park land in unincorporated areas of the county and offers a variety of outdoor recreation facilities and amenities. As Washington County continues to grow and diversify, so does the public’s recreation needs.

We’re planning for the future and invite you to participate in helping shape new facilities and amenities.

The Projects

Washington County Parks is currently developing concept plans for three new facilities.

Campground at Scoggins Valley Park

Washington County Parks manages the 2500-acre Scoggins Valley Park on behalf of the United States Bureau of Reclamation. The park is a popular recreation destination with Hagg Lake at its center. The park welcomes approximately a million visitors per year including boaters, paddlers, anglers, swimming enthusiasts, hikers, cyclists, disk golfers and picnickers.

Since the reservoir was built in the early 1970’s there has been demand for a public campground. The County is working to retrofit a 32-acre area as a campground with a variety of amenities and sites.

Visitor Center/Park Office at Scoggins Valley Park

Western Washington County has a long and interesting history, and we want to tell that story. Cultural, geologic, hydrologic, timber and forestry, and many other aspects of the area’s history will be shared through interpretive signs and displays. 

The building will also have indoor space that can be used for a variety of purposes. It can be rented for weddings. It can be a place for community meetings. It can be a place for public nature and recreation programs. This facility will also provide office space for administrative and program staff. 

Tualatin River access facility at Eagle Landing Park 

Eagle Landing Park is an important link within the network of public access points for recreation on the Tualatin River water trail. The metal staircase that once provided some access to the river was removed after being damaged in a winter storm a few years ago. Public demand has grown for access to this stretch of the river for kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, and canoeing. This project will build a new universally accessible facility to re-establish recreational access connecting people to the river.

The Process

The process for developing these projects is being accomplished in two phases. The first phase is listening to what the community wants these projects to look like and how they should function and operate. All ideas and voices are welcome. 

Phase two will infuse community and stakeholder feedback into design concepts. Once design concepts are created, they will be presented to the community in a second round of engagement.


We’re scheduling multiple opportunities to participate in both Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the public and stakeholder process. Please join us at a session below, and stay tuned for additional opportunities. 

Phase 1: Learn more and provide feedback

What amenities would you want in a campsite at Hagg Lake? What kind of programs would you like the Visitor Center to accommodate? What kinds of improvements would you recommend to the river access facility?

July 18 at 6 PM at the C-Ramp Pavilion at Scoggins Valley Park/Hagg Lake

July 23 at 6 PM via zoom.  Preregister here: 
This listening session will focus specifically on the Tualatin River access facility.

August 3 from 4 - 7 PM at C-Ramp Recreation Area (before the free Rockit Radio concert!)

Phase 2: Review Design Concepts

Stay tuned for upcoming dates for this phase.

When will I get to use these new facilities?

The current phase of the project includes public and stakeholder engagement, project design and completion of construction drawings. Construction is anticipated to be complete no later than Fall 2027.  

How are these projects being funded?

There are a variety of funding sources for these projects including federal and state grants, donations, regional funding sources, and Washington County.
