We’re excited about our new outdoor interpretive historical sign, and we would like your feedback!
The Friends of McLean Park and House received a grant from the Clackamas County Tourism and Cultural Affairs and the City of West Linn’s Community Partnership Program to fund a project called “Know Thy Park.” The grant allowed us to create an historically interpretive outdoor sign that will add understanding and depth to the public’s experience of our beloved McLean House and Park. The sign was designed by McLean House volunteer Leah Desatoff, and the historical content comes from the Friends.
For decades, the McLean House and Park has been a valuable piece of West Linn’s history. Visitors and community members have discovered the wonder of the city-owned McLean House and Park. Many come to see the rose garden once tended by Anne McLean and now by neighboring volunteers. Visitors can see flowers in bloom, a variety of trees and plants, and sense the awe of the outstanding giant sequoia and bay trees.
What do you think? Please let us know!
This is where you come in. We would like to receive your thoughts and feedback about the new historical, interpretive sign. Does the information on the sign give you an understanding of the history of the area? Also, let us know what you would like to see in the McLean Park. Ideas such as: more memorial benches, greater description of the flora etc. Your thoughts will help us make the park a greater place to visit in the future. There is a comment form at the very bottom of this page.
Together with the city of West Linn, Mt Hood Tourism, and the Friends of McLean House are very excited about our newest endeavor to share the experience of our local history with our visitors. Please write your comments below to let us know your thoughts.
Our sincere appreciation in advance.
