Recreation on the Farm
Built around the turn of the century, Luscher Farm is the most intact historic farm in Clackamas County, Oregon. After the City acquired the farm and other adjacent properties, it needed a master plan to preserve the working agricultural activities and natural resources of the site, and provide a mix of compatible active and passive recreation opportunities. Community outreach and engagement resulted in a plan that adeptly balances the desires of a diverse array of interests. The process was complemented by our companion work on a plan for the city’s system of parks and open spaces, which allowed us to incorporate ideas from that process into the design for Luscher Farm.
