AAA Editor Notes
Fort Borst Park is 1 blk. w. of I-5 exit 82, then a blk. s. on Belmont Ave. to the park entrance at 2020 Borst Ave. Among the historic sites here is the Fort Borst Blockhouse, just east of the park entrance; the reconstructed log fort was occupied briefly by troops during the Indian Wars before being sold to Joseph Borst for use as a granary. The Joseph Borst House, in the southern part of the park, was built in 1864 and is well preserved thanks to wood and joints hand-dipped in white lead to waterproof them.

On the grounds are a demonstration garden and an heirloom garden featuring Victorian-style plantings. Next to the Victorian Garden stands a replica of a windowless one-room schoolhouse.

Recreational activities are permitted. Picnicking is permitted.
