Town Center Park is a small municipal park in Wilsonville, Oregon, United States. Located in the middle of Wilsonville’s town center, the 5acre park cost $4.5 million to complete. The park includes the Oregon Korean War Memorial, a visitor’s center, paths, a play area, picnic tables, and an amphitheater among other features. Completed in 2005, Town Center Park is also home to Wilsonville’s first interactive water feature.
Capital Realty donated the land for a park in the center of the Wilsonville town center development in 1994 on condition that it be used as a park. In September 1996, the city started to get more input from city residents on the plans for what was then to be a $2 million park. Early plans for the park included a war memorial for the Korean War, a clock tower, a pond, a fountain, landscaping, picnic areas, a basketball court, a play area for children, gardens, paths, an amphitheater, lawns, and a pavilion area to be partially covered and used to host events such as street fairs. Parking was also to be built, which included spaces for recreational vehicles.
By October 1996, the estimated cost to build the park had increased to $3.3 million. All funding for the park had been secured at that time, and was to come from Wilsonville and the county’s lodging taxes and from a $1 million grant by the county’s tourism council to be used to build a visitor’s center. Wilsonville’s parks board approved of the plans that included the war memorial, the visitor’s center, gardens, paths, fountains, the amphitheater, and lawns at that time. The visitor’s center would also provide restrooms for the park, offer meeting space for the community, and be the home of the city’s chamber of commerce.

  • Town center park has a wide sidewalk that circles the park and is great for walks. The splash fountain in the center of the park has a modern look and is our favorite spot to get our feet wet on hot summer days. Of all the splash fountains we have seen, this one is our favorite!
  • Our family, especially our son, love this park. They do a great job at keeping it clean and it's close to a lot of great stores. The water park is blast when the weather is warm. They also have fun community events here like Fun in the Park and The Wilsonville High School Art Show.
