About the Park

Tentatively closing on September 27th, 2020 for the year.

Located on Foster Reservoir this 40-acre park is a haven on hot days for swimmers and picnickers. With its boarding floats, moorage, picnic areas and roped-off swim beach (no life guard), water skiers and boaters find Lewis Creek to be the ideal spot for a day out on the lake and to host events.

$7 day use parking per vehicle.

Linn County Parks and Recreation is developing a Master Plan for the future of Lewis Creek Park.  Lewis Creek Park was constructed in the late 1960’s, and the park and its related facilities have not changed significantly in the last 50 years.  However, overall recreation use has changed and grown substantially.  The park now receives visitors from all over the state and exceeds its capacity most weekends of the summer.
The development of the Lewis Creek Park Master Plan involves gathering information and ideas from residents and other regional stakeholders in order to learn more about what renovations the County can provide to meet current and future visitor needs and expectations.
The Plan will be successful to the degree that it reflects the visions and values of Lewis Creek Park visitors.  The County welcomes interested community members to participate in a short community survey.  The survey’s intent is to provide input and information about a future vision for Lewis Creek Park.
The survey is available online until January 31, 2021  and can be found by clicking here.  This feedback will help the County understand and better prioritize capital improvements.  Those who take the survey will have an opportunity to enter a raffle to win an overnight stay at one of the County’s camping facilities.
Following the open survey period, the County will also host an online community open house event to explore potential design options and collect additional feedback before the Master Plan is finalized in 2021.
