Works / Parks – Community AM Kennedy Park / Beaverton, Oregon

AM Kennedy ParkAM_Kennedy_ParkAM Kennedy Park is a neighborhood park off of Beaverton Hillsdale HWY in Beaverton in the Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation District (THPRD). A 2008 Park Bond provided the funds for THPRD to move forward with upgrades to AM Kennedy Park  including a full-sized adult, sports field and support amenities including community gardens, playgrounds, gathering areas, and pedestrian trails. GreenWorks developed a plan to accommodate amenities while minimizing impacts to the park’s riparian and native tree groves. In order to support the field parking, a foot bridge, and temporary restrooms are planned for the site with connections to offsite parking. A footbridge is planned to bridge the floodway and wetland while providing access from the parking lot. GreenWorks provided plans for upgrading the following amenities: play equipment, picnic areas, pathways, small foot bridge, drinking fountains, park furniture, open grass areas, natural areas, landscape restoration and buffers, and irrigation.
