In December 2013, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department introduced Brian Booth State Park along Highway 101 on the Oregon coast. Brian, a founding Tonkon Torp partner who passed away in 2012, was also the first chairperson of the original Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission and a lifelong advocate for preserving Oregon’s natural beauty. The park named in his honor combines the former Ona Beach State Park and Beaver Creek State Park. A new park trail map has been recently released, outlining the 5-plus miles of trails within the park’s natural area. More than 200,000 visitors annually enjoy the natural beauty and abundant bird watching in the park.
