Did you know that Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve is a facility of the City of Hillsboro Parks & Recreation Department?

A composting toilet is accessible in the parking lot dawn to dusk. Dogs and bicycles are NOT allowed. Some trails are flooded between November and April. Our Education Building is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day of the week except holidays.
