You already knew it, right? Yes, we’ve learned that OregonLive.com has recently published an article about the 16 most beautiful places in Portland and Terwilliger Parkway is one of them.
Say Hello to Friends of Terwilliger’s dedicated president Anton Vetterlein. Anton has contributed hundreds of volunteer hours to benefit Terwilliger Parkway and Portland’s natural landscapes. A graduate of University of Oregon’s architectural school, he has an eye for design and the tenacity needed to keep the city adhering to the Terwilliger Parkway design guidelines.
Work continues to re-build the retaining rock wall leading to Eagle Point; part of Terwilliger Parkway. Eagle Point was first identified by Portland city founders as a key viewpoint in the late 1890s. A house was soon built here and stood for over 100 years. It was probably at this time that the retaining rock wall was built. Here’s a photo of the work taken October 30th.
