History

Prior to Parks acquisition, the Cully Park property was the Killingsworth Fast Disposal landfill property. The landfill was permanently closed in 1990 and fell under the Orphan Landfill designation where it was taken over by DEQ. Parks purchased the property in 2002 and implemented a master plan in 2009. In 2011, land use and design begin culminating in the first phase of development that opened June 2018. The $12 million dollar phase rebuilt NE 72nd Avenue and was funded by a variety of public and private funding. Approximately $6 million of which was SDC funding and the remainder funded through grants and private donations brought forth by Verde, the non-profit assigned development rights by parks in 2012.

The development of this former brownfield site won an Oregon Brown Fields redevelopment award in 2018 and is set to be a huge community asset for the Cully community.
