Wading Pool Update
PP&R has closed its wading pools for health and safety reasons, as required by new State of Oregon regulations. In 2002, an inventory and assessment of wading pools was completed. Based on those recommendations, as well as input from maintenance and planning staff, PP&R has identified 17 wading pools for replacement and 7 for elimination. Please read the FAQ for more information.

Program Information
The New Timbers Field (synthetic turf soccer/futsal field) is now open! Later this fall, the public will be able to reserve the field through the PP&R Customer Service Center. Please help us keep the new field clean and comply with the rules of use posted at the field.

Historical Information
The name of the area around this park got its start as Mount Tabor Villa in the 1890s. After the Mt Tabor Street Railway Company started running an East Portland route from what is now Grand Ave to SE 55 Ave, development in the Tabor area exploded. Montavilla was one of the names given to neighborhoods by their developers. Also created were North Mt Tabor, Tabor Heights, Tabordale, and East Tabor Villa neighborhoods.
