Portland Wins Award for Crystal Springs Restoration


Restored stream at Westmoreland Park  City staff with award

We’re happy to share that Portland’s restoration of Crystal Springs Creek won recognition from the American Planning Association (APA) at their National Planning Conference, happening this week in Seattle.

The APA is a professional institute for planners that includes 47 chapters around the country.  This award is for Excellence in Sustainability: Sustainable Parks, Recreation and Open Space. 

One of the highlights of the Crystal Springs effort is the Westmoreland Park project.  This award is a testament to the exciting work that Portland Parks & Recreation, Environmental Services, and many community partners and other agencies are doing to weave nature into our neighborhoods, restore historic salmon habitat right in the city, and update our parks at the same time.  We’re looking forward to continued work as part of the Crystal Springs Partnership to keep the momentum going.
