Nature
The park features large wood installations that provide refuge for endangered chinook and coho salmon and steelhead trout.

Historical Information
The park was named after Ira Powers, owner of Powers Furniture Company, who lived in Dunthorpe. Around the time of the Depression, he and other real estate associates gave this strip of land between Macadam Ave and the Willamette River to the City for the extension of Terwilliger Blvd past what is now Tryon Creek State Park.
