We need your help to make a dream become a reality. As you may know, Oregon City is in the midst of planning a major redevelopment adjacent to our incredible Willamette Falls at the former Blue Heron site. We have an opportunity to add a whitewater park to the design process, creating a world-class attraction and transforming the falls into one of the region’s top outdoor recreation destinations.
In order for a whitewater park to be considered, the Willamette Falls Legacy Project needs to hear from you about why this project is so important to Oregonians.
We know a whitewater park would:
Use the power and gradient of the falls to create a new side channel for world-class recreation attractive to both spectators and users
Build on the natural beauty of the falls while also facilitating viewing access to the falls.
Draw over 380,000 visits to Willamette Falls each year.
Create new, good-paying jobs in an area that really needs them.
Produce net economic benefits of $20-30 million / year.
