Veterans Memorial Park

North Plains, OR

The newest park in the North Plains park system celebrates our nation’s heroes and offers visitors a place to relax and reflect.

3J provided pro bono services for a new 11,000 sqft memorial park in North Plains, OR. The park includes a 100-foot flagpole with a 50- by 30-foot flag as the centerpiece; commemorative plaques honoring veterans, branches of the military and POWs; as well as benches, the town’s first electric vehicle charging stations, an American Legion flag disposal box, and a bike rack and repair station. Instead of building an expensive stormwater treatment and detention facility, as required by the permitting jurisdiction, 3J’s water resources team designed the permeable concrete parking lot that allows rain runoff to percolate through into the ground.

3J was honored to be part of the team that helped deliver this project that honors those who have served our country and sacrificed so much for our freedom.

This project was awarded the Oregon Chapter APWA Project of the Year in the Structures (Parks – Less than $5M) category.
