Eagle Landing is a small half-acre parcel on the banks of the Tualatin River located just off of Rainbow Lane near Groner Elementary School. This Park was established through a government/private partnership involving a local Boy Scout Eagle Badge project. As part of the project requirements, the local Scout Troop 874 maintains the Park in perpetuity. In honor of the Eagle Scout project accomplishment, the Washington County Board of Commissioners named the Park “Eagle Landing.”

The amenities in the Park include a 12-vehicle gravel parking lot, a connecting gravel pathway, a trash receptacle, picnic table, and signage board with posted Park rules & regulations. The terminus of the pathway is on the east bank of the Tualatin River. The Park is open seven days a week year round.
