Willamette Falls is the second largest waterfall by volume in North America. For over a century, the breathtaking site has been cut off from public access by industrial infrastructure built along the water’s edge.

Snøhetta is leading the design of the public spaces that will allow visitors to rediscover the full height of the falls and its rugged shoreline, uncovering swaths of the 22-acre site’s historic basalt topography and reconnecting Oregon City to its spectacular waterfront.

The design is the culmination of a complex two-year design process, underpinned by a significant public engagement effort that has reached thousands of unique participants.
