About Us

The members of the Oregon City Parks Foundation may come from different back grounds and experiences, but we all share the same passion for our parks as did Keith and Lila Kelly. The Parks Foundation honors Keith and Lila, by holding these long time park volunteers as our standard bearers.

About Our Parks Foundation

On May 28, 2015, a group of Oregon City residents held a meeting and were inspired to form a core group dedicated to the task of building a Foundation to serve as advocates for our parks, trails, historic and cultural heritage, and recreation sites.


The Foundation received it’s nonprofit status March 31, 2016 and was now ready to begin bringing together existing volunteer groups, businesses, community leaders, and individuals to form partnerships that inspire volunteerism, civic involvement, and philanthropy in support of our parks system.


We hope you will join us in creating opportunities to enhance our parks and enrich our city and it’s citizens quality of life through the promotion of art, history, nature, and recreation.
