VANCOUVER – Clark County Public Works, Parks and Lands division, invites residents to an open house to learn more about the development of Curtin Creek Community Park, 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 6. The 17-acre property is located at 12603 NE 72nd Ave. in Vancouver. 

The park will be developed in two phases, due to funding constraints. The first phase of development will include parking, restrooms, inclusive and natural play areas, a picnic shelter, walking trails, viewpoints and a multipurpose synthetic turf field. Pickleball and basketball courts may also be included in the first phase. Phase two of development will include a second multipurpose field and a second picnic shelter. Construction of phase one is expected to begin in 2025. 

At the open house on March 6, parks staff will share information about the phasing plan in a presentation from 6:30 to 7 p.m. Before and after the presentation, residents are invited to discuss the plan with staff and provide input. Light refreshments will be provided. Residents can attend the presentation in person or online. The in person open house will be in the media center of Prairie High School at 11311 NE 119th St. in Vancouver. Signage will direct attendees to enter through the school’s north entrance.
