History of the Area
Located in the U.S. state of Oregon, this natural reserve was established as a memorial to Henry W. Corbett - an influential businessman and politician from Portland who made significant contributions towards developing infrastructure within the region during his lifetime.

The park's history dates back to 1954 when it was officially designated by Governor Paul L Patterson after being purchased with funds donated by Elliott R. Corbett II and Helen Ladd-Corbett, descendants of H.W.Corbett himself.

Spanning over approximately 1 acre (0.40 ha), its establishment aimed at preserving local flora while providing recreational opportunities for visitors such as picnicking facilities amidst scenic views overlooking Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.

Over time, efforts were undertaken to enhance visitor experience through improvements like adding interpretive signs about regional geology or native plant species found there along with maintaining cleanliness standards across all areas including restrooms available on-site.

However, due to budget constraints faced by Oregon Parks & Recreation Department around early-2000s period; maintenance operations had been reduced significantly leading up-to closure decision taken in late-2012 which came into effect starting January next year making it one among several other parks that got closed down temporarily until further notice regarding their reopening plans could be announced later-on based upon availability of sufficient funding resources again eventually restoring public access once more someday hopefully soon enough!

Corbett Memorial State Park offers picnic tables and grills, perfect for family outings. Enjoy scenic views while eating outdoors.
