George Foege Park
North of Highway 26, the environment is decidedly more rural, though more and more residential housing is being built every year. Most likely, within a few years this area will soon resemble the crowded residential and commercial areas south of highway 26.
This little park consists of a pathway that runs along NW Cedar Hills Blvd., and has two bridges that cross this busy road at opportune times.
There are wide spots in the park that are used for a location for benches and one piece of playground equipment.
Other than serving as a stopover point for those headed elsewhere (and not even really that good at that as there are no rest rooms here), and maybe providing a small area for young children to run around, the park has little of interest for most travelers.
These photos were taken in very early 2005.
Beaverton when you're young
Growing up in Beaverton, you either learn to like the Oregon State Beavers or the Uof O Ducks. There are really no Pro teams there with the exceptions of The Trailblazers. We followed the Seattle Seahawks, and the 49ers. We loathed the Sonics and we passed up Jordan back in the day when we had all the talent!! Now the team is straight thugs!
"Growing up in the rain"
Oregon is rainy and growing up there you don't know there are places like Colo. where you seen sun 300+ days a year.The grass always smells fresh, there were catapillers all over, you would always avoid stepping on slugs and the forest was amazing.
"Goonies Beach Haystack Rock"
You have to go visit the tidepools at Cannon Beach, the place where Goonies was filmed. There is a huge rock with amazing shellfish, you can ride horses on the beach and rent 3 wheelers, or other activities. Don't forget to go into town and get some fresh saltwater taffy. THE GOOD STUFF
