The Hillsdale Neighborhood Association and the Hillsdale and Business Association are sponsoring a committee that is leading an effort to select a new name for Wilson Pool.  Over the past 2 months the entire SW community has been invited to nominate a new name for the Wilson Pool.  A total of 21 new names have been nominated.  We are now asking the community to vote online for their preferred name.

Go to for details on the name choices and to cast your vote.

SWTrails PDX has agreed to host the ballot process as a service to Hillsdale and surrounding communities. You may vote online until April 30th on the SWTrails PDX website.  The nine-member Rename the Wilson Pool Committee will review the votes in early May.  If one name receives a majority vote, the committee will request Portland Parks to rename the Wilson Pool to that name.  If one name does not receive a majority vote, a second runoff election will be held using the same online voting process.

We hope to have a new name confirmed by early fall 2022.

Thanks for participating.
The Rename the Wilson Pool Committee
