The office at the entrance to the park The Tualatin Hills Nature Park is a 222-acre nature park and wildlife preserve in Beaverton, Oregon, owned by the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District. It is one of THPRD's two nature parks along with Cooper Mountain Nature Park. The park features of trails, of which 1.5 miles are paved and 3.5 miles unpaved. The park features a diverse environment including several types of both evergreen and deciduous trees as well as creeks, wetlands, ponds, and meadows. Located on 15655 S.W. Millikan Way, at the main entrance to the park, is the Tualatin Hills Nature Center, formerly called the Tualatin Hills Nature Park Interpretive Center. The name was changed in November 2014. Nature supervisor Kristin Atman said that "six words is really a mouthful" and the new name would be more consistent with THPRD's other facilities.
Tualatin Hills Nature Park & Interpretive Center offers 222 ecologically diverse acres, a unique habitat including ponds, creeks, marshes and forests. The park can be explored via one and a half (1.5) miles of paved trails and four (4) miles of secondary trails.
