Cook Park Redesign Work Session

Help Us Design a New Playground: Cook Park Inclusive Play 

The Parks & Recreation Division is hosting a design competition between playground companies to see who can design the best playground for the space.

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

  1. Online: Engage Tigard  | November 20th-30th
  2. In-Person: November 20, 2021 | 10 AM to 1 PM | 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.
