Year acquired
Size in acres

Beginning in 2012, the Trust for Public Land (TPL) negotiated the purchase of the privately-owned 120-acre Colwood Golf Course. As part of TPL's efforts, the northern portion of the property (35 acres) was rezoned for industrial use in 2013. TPL purchased the other 85 acres of the property with the intent to sell it to the City of Portland to manage as open space. Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) and the Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) jointly purchased the 85 acres from TPL on March 28, 2014, after receiving approval from Portland City Council. PP&R operates 48 acres of the parcel as a golf facility for youth and adults. The remaining 37 acres are being restored as a natural area.

Following the City’s acquisition of the Colwood property, Colwood Golf Course re-opened as the new Colwood Golf Center and was transformed from an 18-hole golf course into an inclusive par-3, 9-hole course. The facility also includes an event room, outdoor event area, footgolf, an expansive golf practice area, and a scenic driving range ranked as a Top 50 Public Facility by the Golf Range association of America in 2019 and 2020.
