A trail system along the Tualatin River leads to riparian and wetland habitats which attract birds all year round. In winter ducks, wading birds and songbirds frequent the ponds; check tall conifers for Townsend’s Warbler. On the river, watch for Bald Eagle, Common Merganser and Belted Kingfisher. A foot bridge across the river connects Tualatin Community Park with Cook Park in Tigard (Site T2) and Durham City Park. The Art Walk follows parts of the Tualatin Trail system and highlights community and private art. The Tualatin Heritage Center is located on the Art Walk adjacent to Sweek Pond. Paddlers’ access is at Tualatin Community Park.
