Kent Studebaker Launches New Playground at E. Waluga Park

Lake Oswego Mayor Kent Studebaker was in our neighborhood May 2nd to inaugurate the new playground at East Waluga Park, as well as other enhancements such as new landscaping and a new accessible-ramp to the picnic shelter.

The mayor, along with members of the Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation District and the Waluga Neighborhood Association, cut the ribbon to unveil the expansive new playground. The City also sponsored activities for the whole family, including face-painting, group exercises, and a balloon artist.

The mayor also thanked the Waluga Neighborhood Association (WNA) for their work on a recent Neighborhood Enhancement Program grant. Working hand-in-hand with the City, about 20 volunteers recently planted new shrubs, ferns and trees along Quarry Road in front of East Waluga Park.

The mayor also cited Friends of Waluga Park, a volunteer group sponsored by WNA that works to protect the natural areas of Waluga Park. Friends of Waluga Park has “Freed the Trees” from the scourge of English Ivy throughout the entire south half of East Waluga Park. They have also removed fence posts and trash, and recently repelled an invasion of noxious garlic mustard.

WNA would like to thank the mayor for his participation and the Park and Recreation Department for their beautiful enhancements to East Waluga Park. WNA also wants to thank all its volunteers who helped beautify and protect the park.

Quarry Road Pathway Beautification

The Waluga Neighborhood Association (WNA) was awarded a Neighborhood Enhancement Program grant to re-beautify part of our area with new plants, shrubs, trees and mulch. Working in conjunction with the City of Lake Oswego Parks Department, about 20 volunteers planted drought-resistant shrubs, ferns and trees along Quarry Road in front of East Waluga Park. The intrepid volunteers also spread two loads of mulch between the road and pathway.

WNA would like to thank all its volunteers, as well as Mark Touhey and Sage Hemmer from the City. Our neighborhood has truly been enhanced!

The Waluga Neighborhood Association also donated to the City of Lake Oswego for the creation of a memorial plaque for our honored Board Member, Ron Anderson. The City placed the plaque on the newly refurbished bench on the Quarry pathway.
