Description

Several years after the State purchased land from Lane County, Civilian Conservation Corps enrollees improved the Alderwood State Wayside. The work was conducted in 1935.

As noted in the Oregon State Park’s 1965 publication: “The facilities at Alderwood are not extensive, being a small area for parking cars, two foot-bridges, trails, tables and sanitary facilities, all constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps.” Necessary maintenance at the wayside has resulted in replacement of some of the improvements but the basic lay-out remains the same.
