Before R Park, what was there? Formerly, a commercial gravel pit, acres of land served as gravel storage mounds and fill. It has taken years to remove the hundreds of thousands of tons of gravel and to reclaim approximately 14 acres of desolate land.

What sort of habitat is R Park? R Park lies within the Snake River riparian corridor and is part of the river’s historic floodplain. In addition to conserving the property through a conservation easement and reclaiming the gravel pit back to a more natural state, we are committed to operating in a manner that is sensitive and mindful of the habitat and animals within the ecosystem, while providing public access.

Does R Park have partners? R Park would not be possible without the support of its many partners and its committed “FRIENDS of R PARK.” Also, the park’s design and land use plan is a direct result of public input.
