Changing the world, one playground at a time

November 5, 2012

On Saturday, Nick was proud to join Mayor Adams, the Goldberg family, the Portland Parks & Recreation team, and community members to celebrate the grand opening of Harper's Playground.

The Timbers Army and Portland Fire & Rescue also joined in the fun with a park barbecue and cupcakes for the children.

Hundreds of children and their families enjoyed the new swings, water feature, slides, and more.  The new playground, inspired by six-year-old Harper Goldberg, is completely accessible to children of all abilities. 

We were thrilled to see the Goldberg family's dream become a reality.  Special thanks to everyone who joined us to celebrate Harper and her family!
