Leverich Park, Vancouver

Leverich Park is a 33acre park located in Vancouver, Washington. It is located along Burnt Bridge Creek in a natural area of Vancouver adjacent to Interstate 5. The park features a large picnic shelter, picnic tables, plenty of hiking trails and a twelve-hole Disc golf course.
The park is north of 39th St., E. of Pacific Highway, and the state of Washington's oldest Blue Star Memorial Highway marker and L-shaped area of about 33 ½ acres, lying partly within and just north of the city limits, was deeded to the city for park purposes by Mrs. Anna Leverich. It was established as a municipal park in 1931 and in the same year an obelisk was erected and a Douglas fir planted by the bicentennial celebration of George Washington’s birth. In accordance with the terms of the deed, the natural beauty of the area has been preserved as much as possible. Burnt Bridge Creek, branching out among low hills and small groves of native firs, deciduous trees, and occasional cedars, gives the park a truly sylvan charm. The construction of Interstate 5 through Vancouver split the park separating the Covington House historic cabin and Kiggins Bowl from the rest of the park.
In 2008 a twelve-hole disc golf course was added to the park. The course was the result of a cooperative effort between Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation, Vancouver-Clark Disc Golf and Stumptown Disc Golf.

  • Very dynamic landscapes! It has bridges, hills, paths, fields, a nice spot covered by trees, pretty much everything you could want. It gives an amazing feeling for being out doors, even though you're in the middle of Vancouver. One of, if not the best parks I've ever been to
  • I love the park with its long paved pathways and disc golf. It has a quaint little play area for the little kids and a covered area for family get togethers. I didn't like the alcohol that everyone was drinking especially around all the kids but other than that it was clean and a wonderful day out at the park.
