Green Spots are sustainable community features that nurture healthy, connected communities.
- At June Key Delta Community Center, learn how a service-driven non-profit created a living building composed of cargo containers, salvaged glass and recycled construction materials using green technology.
- Find out why Harper’s Playground at Arbor Lodge Park is a place where people of all ages and abilities can play safely, relax on pesticide-free lawns and build community.
- Discover how to borrow what you need, meet neighbors and join the sharing community at the North Portland Tool Library.
- See how New Columbia models how to be a good neighbor. Learn how together they create art and grow and eat affordable, healthful food.
- Travel on neighborhood greenways and enjoy safer and easier ways to walk and roll through the neighborhood.
Those are just a few things that can happen when you stop at a Green Spot. Portland’s neighborhoods integrate people and the built and natural environments to form a resilient cityscape. As the city grows and develops, these Green Spots are essential to maintaining a prosperous, healthy and connected city.
The City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) organizes the Green Spot activities. Visit www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/greenspot or contact Bill Beamer, 503-823-5629 at BPS for more information.
