New East Portland playgrounds open

November 1, 2012

Two new Portland Parks & Recreation outdoor playgrounds in East Portland are now open!

Brand new equipment is installed and ready for play at East Holladay Park and East Portland Community Center.

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.
