Location

From SW St Helens (near Walmart and Safeway) turn east on Gable Road. In 0.6 miles the road curves to the NE and becomes the Old Portland Road. Take this road NE for 0.5 miles and turn left on 18th Street. Go 0.1 miles and look for the entrance into the park on your left. Park and explore the large grove of trees to the west.

Habitat and Birds

Milton Creek flows through the park so watch for riparian species. This is a top migrant location in the spring. If possible, avoid the weekends because the frisbee golf course is very popular. Warblers, vireos, flycatchers and other migrants can be abundant here in migration.
