Main parking lot at Powell Butte Nature Park in February 2013

Previously slated to re-open in May 2013, the main parking lot at Powell Butte Nature Park in SE Portland is now rescheduled to open by October 2013. Temporary free parking lots continue to be available in designated locations around the butte. 

Powell Butte Reservoir 2 in March 2013

Construction on the city’s new 50-million gallon underground reservoir is making steady progress. However, work on the publicly-required park facilities – a new Interpretive Center with restrooms, the permanent Caretaker’s House, and trail upgrades – have faced some delays. 

The nature park remains open to all visitors. Park users are reminded to keep out of fenced construction areas and to stay on open designated park trails.

Additional information detailing the Powell Butte Reservoir 2 Project can be accessed online at:
