History

Portland Parks & Recreation originally acquired the Beech Property for the purpose of building a park in the year 1984, and then purchased additional property in 1999. Beech property was a 15.7 acre undeveloped site surrounded by a working farm, single family residences, and Shaver Elementary School in the Argay neighborhood, very close to the Parkrose neighborhood.

The master planning process in 2008 outlined some important features, including a community garden, soccer field, high intensity sports area, fenced off-leash dog area, grassy open space, children’s play area, water play area, and picnic areas. The master plan for this park was adopted by City Council in March 2009. Final design for the park started in 2015 with construction taking place from summer 2016 through fall 2017.

Luuwit View Park will offer expansive views, including a majestic vista of Luuwit - Native (upper Cowlitz) name for Mt. St. Helens. The park’s name helps to honor the indigenous people who have lived on the land since time immemorial, and serves to recognize the overall history of the area.

As of its opening in October of 2017, Luuwit View Park is the largest and most developed park in the Parkrose neighborhood. Luuwit View Park will serve nearly 1,000 Portland households, ones which formerly did not have ready access to a park.
