Enjoy picnics, views and history at Mason Hill Park.
Mason Hill Park provides a scenic wayside for cyclists exploring the rolling hills beyond Forest Park, in western Multnomah County. With just an acre to explore, Mason Hill is Metro's smallest park - but one of its most historical.
Home to a one-room schoolhouse from 1891 to 1944, the park still feels light years removed from modern life. Lollygag in the shade, take in spectacular views of the Tualatin Valley and eat a picnic lunch under the shelter, which has the original school bell mounted on top. The surrounding community still hosts a reunion picnic every August.
Be on the lookout for new benches, tables and fencing, thanks to a voter-approved levy that helps Metro care for regional parks and natural areas. Mason Hill is slated for upgrades during 2014.
Mason Hill Park is nestled in rural Multnomah County, at the intersection of Northwest Johnson Road and Munson Road. If you drive, be prepared to park in a narrow roadside spot.
