Call to Artists: Mural Project at Hagg Lake, Due April 8

Washington County Parks is excited to announce an opportunity for a local artist to transform a wall for our Scoggins Valley Outfitters watercraft rental business at Scoggins Valley Park, home of Henry Hagg Lake. The Park averages 1 million visitors each year, and the mural will be located at our busiest recreation area.

Scoggins Valley Park is owned by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and operated by Washington County Parks. The 2,500-acre park features two boat-launching facilities, over 14 miles of multi-use trails, an 18-hole disc golf course, and numerous picnic areas. The physical address of the mural site is 50250 SW Scoggins Valley Road, Gaston, OR 97119 at C-Ramp Recreation area.
