Let's create Hallinan Nature Park - Lake Oswego, OR.

This petition had 695 supporters

Hallinan Woods is an existing, 3.75-acre natural area owned by the city, just north of Hallinan Elementary School in Lake Oswego. Every day, dozens of children and residents walk this path, listening to the creek flow and the birds chirp. Residents young and old say they love this little natural corner of the neighborhood. It offers a daily dose of nature, which research shows increases happiness, improves health, and extends lifespans. 

But the experience at Hallinan Woods is at risk, due to a proposed housing development on 2 acres that border the woods. Building houses on this property, right next to Hallinan Woods, would degrade Hallinan Woods and the natural experiences people have in the woods. This property is perfectly situated to serve a higher purpose.

Join us in asking the Lake Oswego City Council to slow down and consider adding the property to the existing Hallinan Woods. In doing so, we would create a nearly 6-acre natural area that provides more opportunities for children and adults to get into nature and learn about wildlife, native species, and ecology via classes, kiosks, and stewardship events.

Instead of rubber stamping more houses in an area flush with houses but low on open space and natural learning opportunities, join us and ask Lake Oswego City Council to slow down and listen to neighbors. Sign our petition to create the Hallinan Woods Nature Park – for our children, for wildlife, for water, and for our Lake Oswego way of life. Learn more at
