A nature lover’s delight, this park contains the largest wet prairie ecosystem in the lower Willamette Valley. The tall-grass prairie at Deer Creek Park attracts regional attention each spring when both very rare and more common wildflowers burst into bloom. Located in Gopher Valley at the confluence of Cronin Creek and Deer Creek, this 30-acre park is one of the county’s finest, with abundant picnic areas beneath a grove of 100 year-old Oregon ash.
