Beaver Creek

Beaver Creek Information

Beaver Creek starts as a spring near Dodge Park Blvd, and flows through farms and nurseries. It passes by houses in Gresham and Troutdale where smaller creeks, like Kelly Creek, flow into it. The creek then empties into the Sandy River near Glenn Otto Park.

The Beaver Creek watershed is the area of land where rain water flows towards the creek. It is home to salmon, salamanders, herons, eagles, otters, lamprey, people, and much more.
