Harper's Playground on track for October grand opening


By David Nguyen

Construction of Harper's Playground is making steady progress.

This amazing addition to North Portland's Arbor Lodge Park will be 100% accessible and is designed to create a space where children and adults of all capabilities can play together.

The playground was spearheaded by Cody and April Goldberg, the parents of young Harper, who has a rare condition called Emanuel Syndrome.  The Goldberg family spent two years fundraising for the playground and are thrilled to see their dream finally becoming a reality.

We are looking forward to the grand-opening celebration of this very special playground this October.
