About the Park

Linn County leased the approximate four acres of Gedney Creek Assess on Foster Reservoir from the Army Corps of Engineers in March of 1967. The Army Corps of Engineers upgraded the boat ramp and parking lot and provided sanitary facilities in 1969. The Sweet Home Green Peter, Boat, Yacht and Regatta Association donated the original docks to complement the ramp.
