  • Tot Park renamed Strawberry Park!

    The former "Tot Park" has been renamed "Strawberry Park!"

    The Parks CPC recommended and the City Council formally adopted the name "Strawberry Park" for several reasons:

    We all know the Molalla Region grows some of the best strawberries on the planet, but did you know the Coyote used them to trick the Bear?

    This foundational story of the Molalla Tribe is honored by the name of this park, and is memorialized in a great piece of art featured on the Molalla Heritage Art Walk.
