PROJECT OVERVIEW

“Inclusive design doesn’t mean you’re designing one thing for all people. It means you’re designing a diversity of ways for people to participate in an experience so that everyone has a sense of belonging.” -Susan Goltsman

Hillsboro is designing a new park in one of the most exciting locations in Hillsboro. Located right between 53rd Avenue Community Park East and the new Hidden Creek Community Center, this park will be a place for everyone to come together. Here, you will be able to participate in all sorts of play, community gathering, and inter-generational experiences. Our primary goal, though, is for you (and everyone else who comes to this new park) to have fun and feel a deep sense of belonging.

53rd Avenue Community Park West will be an inclusive park and playground for all, which means it will be designed for people of all ages, all abilities, all backgrounds, all orientations, and all of the other alls that connect, create, and strengthen our vital Hillsboro community.

PROJECT GOALS

  1. Create an inclusive park 
  2. Embrace the site’s context
