Natural Areas

Portland Parks & Recreation has developed a Natural Area Acquisition Strategy to guide completion of a connected system of natural areas in Portland.

PP&R's acquisition program focuses on buying land from willing sellers, however, we do accept nominations from everyone. Do you know of a great habitat site that we should consider for acquisition? Submit a site nomination form.

RENEW Forest Park

This $20+ million, 20-year initiative includes three main components that look holistically at ecology, recreation and access. Together, we will renew this remarkable asset and create a legacy for generations to come.
