The Forest Park Map
Forest Park is located in the West Hills of Portland, Oregon, and is one of the largest urban parks in the country. The Art of Geography has made a variety of maps of Forest Park.
§ Map with shaded relief blended with landcover
This new variation of the Forest Park map is in beta testing.
§ Incredibly detailed map with topographic relief and contour lines
- Get One City's Wilderness, a book by Marcy Cottrell Houle. The book has a 25 inch wide fold-out panel in the back with two maps of the park as well as detailed maps of each hike next to the hike description.
§ Poster map with blend of relief, vegetation texture, and NAIP landcover
Now available from Forest Park Conservancy for $25 (plus shipping)
There is now a dedicated page for the book maps which describes the cartographic features.
