Rocking Chair Dam

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Rocking Chair Dam with Rocking Chair Creek in full flow (bobcat)


Rocking Chair Dam is a small structure on Rocking Chair Creek constructed to retain a reservoir for firefighting purposes from the days when Leif Erikson Drive was being developed as a residential street. The reservoir has since silted up. Near here is a picnic table.

Rocking Chair Creek was so named because a rocking chair was found lying in the creek.
