Two new Portland Parks & Recreation outdoor playgrounds in East Portland are now open!
These new playgrounds are part of our E205 initiative, which brings parks improvements to underserved neighborhoods in East Portland. 40% of Portland families with children live in East Portland neighborhoods, but there are fewer parks for them to enjoy.
The new playgrounds include two new play structures, swings, a slide, see-saws, and other play equipment on top of a bark surface.
With the additional support from our private partnerships, other improvements have been made to other parks around Portland, including community gardens, better lighting, and playgrounds.
