Portland Parks & Recreation offers diverse environmental experiences in our parks, gardens, and natural areas. Classes, guided walks, camps, volunteer opportunities, and special events focus on the forest, grassland, and water ecosystems available in neighborhoods throughout the city. From young children to older adults, people of all ages can find active involvement with nature close to home.
