Iron Mountain Park Concept Plan

Iron Mountain Park is an approximately 51-acre park located in the center of the City of Lake Oswego. Iron Mountain Park is larger than a local neighborhood park and integrates natural and developed features. A preferred design has been created by the firm ESA and is in the process of being implemented.

Eventually a park site will be designed, developed and restored to provide a place for the community to recreate and  connect with nature.

The Iron Mountain Concept Plan planning process will result in several deliverables to move forward with developing, restoring and managing the site. Some aspects of the plan and planning process are:

  • Conceptual site design, featuring amenities consistent with Parks Plan 2025 recommendations and design guidelines for Citywide, Integrated Hybrid Character parks (App. K - PP2025).
  • Public engagement program that will provide ample opportunities for the community to invest in the future concept of the site. Opportunities will be both real time and online.
  • A professional design team that will translate community input into a high quality professional park design that is uniquely Lake Oswego.

Additionally, the Department will be working with highly qualified resource professionals to develop stream and wetland restoration plans. This will address the degraded resources onsite and provide the City with a strategy to restore these resources and their function within our areas watershed. Aspects of this process are:

  • Delineation of resources (Wetlands, Stream Corridors and Tree Groves) according to Department of State Lands and City of Lake Oswego requirements. (COMPLETED)
  • Restoration plan for stream and wetland resources.
