Today, Bicentennial play ground is the only public park completely fenced in the Hillsboro/Beaverton area. We would like to send a big THANK YOU to one of our members who made it happened by working with the city of Hillsboro.

Want to know more details?
This mom (member of the MOMS Club of Hillsboro) randomly met an employee from Hillsboro parks & recreation that designs parks. She explained the need of fenced park within our city while she was running after her child. After exchanging contact information, our member sent several emails and set up meetings to explain her idea and how it could be implemented. The city of Hillsboro financed the project, but our member was determined to fund raise if it was necessary. She said that the entire process was "a lot easier than [she] thought it would be".
