Harper's Playground turns one

 November 4, 2013

One year ago, Nick was pleased to join the Goldberg family at the grand opening of Harper's Playground in North Portland's Arbor Lodge Park.

Harper's Playground is a fully accessible place for children of all ages and abilities to learn and play. The playground was spearheaded by Cody and April Goldberg, the parents of young Harper, who has a rare condition called Emanuel Syndrome.

As the former Portland Parks & Recreation Commissioner, Nick was proud to champion the unique public/private partnership that brought Harper's Playground to life. The City of Portland donated funding and staff time to build the one-of-a-kind playground.

Congratulations to the Goldberg family on Harper's Playground's one-year anniversary. We support more play for more people!
