This month, Community Cycling Center will turn two vacant lots in the New Columbia neighborhood into a Bicycle Repair Hub which will provide affordable bicycle repair and maintenance clinics.

The project represents the collaborative efforts of the Community Cycling Center, Home Forward, Portland Development Commission, Bikes Belong, and the Bike Gallery, along with All Can Ride, a resident-led bike committee at New Columbia.

The Community Cycling Center will work with graduate students from the Oregon College of Art and Craft and Pacific Northwest College of Art’s joint MFA program in Applied Craft and Design (ACD) to transform empty spaces into dynamic and creative learning centers.

Students will spend three days in design charrettes with New Columbia residents starting August 20, and construction will be completed by August 31.

You can contribute to the success of this project by making a donation online, or by donating a bicycle at the center’s bike shop at 1700 NE Alberta Street.

Construction of Harper's Playground is making steady progress.

This amazing addition to North Portland's Arbor Lodge Park will be 100% accessible and is designed to create a space where children and adults of all capabilities can play together.

The playground was spearheaded by Cody and April Goldberg, the parents of young Harper, who has a rare condition called Emanuel Syndrome.  The Goldberg family spent two years fundraising for the playground and are thrilled to see their dream finally becoming a reality.

We are looking forward to the grand-opening celebration of this very special playground this October.
