Design Day Coming to Cook Park!

Cook Park is the oldest, and most well-known park in the City of Tigard. The park has a rich history and a variety of amenities including a large playground structure that has aged beyond its useful life.

“The goal is to provide an experience that is memorable for a lifetime,” says Project Manager Carla Staedter. “The new playground should reflect the significance of Cook Park and be a welcoming destination for people of all ages and abilities.”

The city is excited for the community to get involved in the process. The Parks & Recreation Division is hosting a design competition between playground companies to see who can design the best playground for the space. “Best” will be informed by an engagement process, that kicks off with a hybrid (in-person and online) ‘Design Day’ open house in November. Attendees will have the opportunity to tell designers directly what is most important for the design.

Design Day

Online: Engage Tigard from November 20 - EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 5, 2021.

In-Person: November 20, 2021 | 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. | Cook Park Shelter #2 by the main playground

Note: This event will follow the city’s COVID Health & Safety Protocol which requires masks, distancing, and a self health check.

Reinvesting in Cook Park

Many of the parks features are due for an upgrade. We are currently working to maximize the recreation value of the park, as recommended in the city's draft Parks & Recreation Master Plan. Revitalizing Cook Park is also important for reaching the city’s goals for equity, walkability, accessibility and more.
