Lewisville Park is a 154-acre regional park located two miles north of Battle Ground in Clark County, Washington. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.HistoryThe park was built starting in 1936 as a Works Progress Administration (WPA) recreational center project. The architecture and overall design of the park is intentionally rustic, a common idiom promoted by federal land management agencies in the early part of the 20th century. Lewisville park is the oldest in the county park system and is one of the most significant and lasting examples of the WPA in Clark County.Several of the existing structures were built by WPA workers between 1936 and 1940 and were still existing when the park was added to the national register, including a caretaker's cottage, bathhouse, kitchen, one large and two small shelters. All were built to appear non-intrusive and used local logs and rocks in their construction. Several other buildings, not a part of the historic register list, were built in the 1950s and 1960s and maintained the natural aesthetic designs of the existing structures.Present dayFacilities include: Swimming hole, nature trails, playgrounds, tennis/basketball court and sports fields, fishing, and other facilities typical of large regional asset parks.

  • This is a great family park with lots of amenities. It is well maintained and has almost a full three miles of walking trails most of which are stroller and wheelchair friendly. Be sure to watch out for Stinging Nettle and Devil's Club along the trails (I've included a photo for easy identification. Devil's Club in the foreground with the large leaves. Nettles are the tall plant of to the side.)
  • The traffic was backed up on 503 for 45 minutes blocking the road because they have only one booth open to take their $3.00 fee. Then on top of that you must have exact change!. really, are you kidding. We had over a 100 angry people trying to go to a wedding reception in 103 degrees on Sunday June 25th 2017. Can't you add a second booth??, must you collect the $3.00 it seems like we pay enough in taxes for these parks anyway. There has got to be a better system than this.!!! come on Folks! really.
  • We have rented shelters here for years. Great park that is well cared for. We are lucky to have local access to this park.
  • Great park with lots of space. Lots of parking lots and separate areas to explore. There are many Barbeques you can use, and even a smoke pit under a wood building. Took our daughter for her first swing and we had a blast!
  • Quiet, cool park with great swimming. Pretty much always able to find a spot alone to enjoy one of the CCC era shelters, compete with power, water, fireplaces, etc.
