Future greenway trail one step closer

Metro purchased 1.5 acres in October 2008 on the main stem of the Tualatin River near Brown's Ferry Park in Tualatin. The land is directly adjacent to an earlier acquisition by Metro at the river's confluence with Saum Creek.

Protecting land along this stretch of the Tualatin River meets multiple goals including protecting water quality and wildlife habitat and creating a future greenway trail to serve local and regional residents. 

Confluence of Tualatin River and Saum Creek protected

Located in Clackamas County off of Southwest Tualasaum Drive, the property includes 110 feet of river frontage along the Tualatin River and the confluence of Saum Creek.

Tualatin River and Saum Creek confulence

The Tualatin is Washington County's only river and an important natural resource. It is home to an abundance of fish and wildlife including steelhead and salmon, Western painted turtles and Northern red-legged frogs. It also provides drinking water to local human residents. Acquisition of stream frontage by Metro helps protect water quality in the river.
