A new park in Hillsboro?

1 minutes
March 3, 2006
I attended a planning meeting yesterday at the Hillsboro city offices to discuss a plan to convert a 41 acre site at 53rd & Baseline into a community park. Ideas include a community lawn area, sports fields, demonstration gardens and a community center with basketball and tennis courts, jogging track etc. After feedback from an initial consultation phase, a number of other features are being considered including a doggy off leash area which [Becky](/pets/becky) would love. The whole project looks really exciting, and could be the last chance to build a public space on any size in the heart of Hillsboro, although the proposed dog areas are tiny :-( Further information can be found on [the project website](http://www.53rdavenuepark.org/), which also provides an opportunity for comment.
