Ok, it is a large telephone pole painted as a barber pole. Not worth the time. I just happened to be driving near by. There are much better things to do in Forest Grove than this.........

Going to a ballgame found this pole

Interesting, along with the plaque that explains it’s purpose. Interesting other plaques along a path nearby. Can’t say that we’d recommend this site to anyone.

This pole is close to home and marks a good place to catch local teams play soccer. 72 ft tall and well kept, it stands guard all year.

It's a giant barber pole

That's it - a giant barber pole. It's not interesting, it's not worth going out of your way for. It's not even outrageously kitschy enough to be funny. It's... it's a giant barber pole.

Ball less.

It's ball less...Barber Poles should have a ball at the top, this one is ball less. So it's wood painted red white and blue.

"Tall and proud, the Barber Shop Pole stands."
Jun 2016 • Friends
The Barber Pole is 72 feet tall and colored red, white and blue. I have enjoyed several Barber Shop Pole visits in recent years. I would highly recommend bringing a camera and staying for at least five minutes. If you are are a Forest Grove resident yourself, bring your out-of-state family and friends when they come to visit. This is a unique landmark, and a visit to it makes for a wonderful family photo and a story to share with your friends.

About as exciting as looking at a telephone pole. The only reason to see it is to say that you saw it.

Right by the college

Very close to Pacific University. It's also located right outside of Lincoln Park. The parking area is small but the field is well kept. Just happened to drive by and noticed the tall barber pole.
