Wading Pool Update
PP&R has closed its wading pools for health and safety reasons, as required by new State of Oregon regulations. In 2002, an inventory and assessment of wading pools was completed. Based on those recommendations, as well as input from maintenance and planning staff, PP&R has identified 17 wading pools for replacement and 7 for elimination. Please read the FAQ for more information.

Historical Information
This park is named for Harvey W. Scott, the outspoken editor of The Oregonian newspaper in the late 1800s/early 1900s, and brother of Abigail Scott Duniway for whom Duniway Park was named.
