Park Project Proposal Process

Thank you for your interest in improving your park! Many community members wish to contribute to the vitality of Portland Parks & Recreation by proposing park enhancements or changes. The Park Project Proposal process will help you take a great idea and see if, together, we can create a real project.

In September 2012, we instituted a hold on processing and responding to new park proposals. We are pleased to announce that we will now accept new proposals. Please review the Project Proposal Guidelines before completing the Project Proposal Application Part I. 

Due to the continued high number of planning projects and limited staff, some proposals may need to wait until there is sufficient staff capacity to complete a review. Other proposals may be able move forward faster. We will review each proposal submitted on a case-by-case basis and determine the review timeline. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
