The most prominent physical feature visible from Willamette is the verdant hillside to the north of our commercial core. The 14-acre White Oak Savanna is West Linn’s newest natural park.
White Oak Savanna serves as a refuge for wildlife, offers a sanctuary for respite and renewal and preserves one of Oregon’s few remaining expanses of white oaks. The park was purchased by Oregon Parks and Recreation, Metro and the city of West Linn.
Location: Off 1-205 at the intersection of Blankenship and Tanner Drive
Help Save the Savanna: A citizen who securing $1 million in grants is proof that a dedicated individual can save a savanna. This summer, Northwest Youth Corps Outdoor Oregon is removing invasive Himalayan blackberry. More volunteers are needed. To help contact: www.nlwl.org
