- William Lair Hill, a Portland pioneer, was a lawyer and editor. This park is named for him because he wrote many of Oregon's early laws. Just south of downtown, the four-acre community park offers a playground, wading pool, art center, tennis courts and the shade of old-growth trees. In 1927, Multnomah County gave the plot to the City of Portland. The park has remained a popular neighborhood interest and its proximity to the Terwilliger Parkway makes it exceptionally attractive.
