West Delta Park


by born1945

"Army Backup"

This park is where the city of Vanport, formerly Oregon's second largest, was destroyed in 1948 by a tsunami flood. The one retaining wall collapsed and sent a 12-foot wave washing over the city. Now, this 633-acre natural area contains optimal wetland hiking and the Heron Lakes Golf Course. Lush marshes are home to an abundance of indigenous flora and fauna. West Delta Park area is also designated for the United States Army during national emergencies.
