Commonwealth Lake Park Portland, OR THPRD
Commonwealth Lake Park
Our 3 year old Jaycee’s favorite thing about Commonwealth Lake Park was by far the ducks! We will be back in the summer to fish for trout when they stock the lake. There are play grounds at both ends of the park and a paved path around the lake to let children get some energy out.
Nestled in the Cedar Hills neighborhood, between Walker Rd. and Hwy 26, 20-acre Commonwealth Lake Park surrounds man-made Commonwealth Lake. Johnson Creek runs along the north border of the park, while a playground and soccer field are featured on the park’s west side.
Walkers and bikers enjoy the paved, flat trail – about .8 miles around – that surrounds the lake. Benches and picnic benches are available at the park, which is a favorite spot for bird watchers and photographers seeking out Great Blue Herons, Cedar Waxwings, and Green Herons, as well as a variety of waterfowl.
This park is also a popular destination for anglers. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife stocks the lake with trout; it is one of three THPRD sites where fishing is welcome with a valid Oregon fishing license.
On its east end, Commonwealth Lake Park connects to Foothills Park across SW Huntington Ave.
