Public/Private Agreements

Request for Expressions of Interest
Businesses, non-profit organizations, and individuals are invited to form public-private agreements to carry out revenue-generating programs or capital-related activities supporting Portland Parks & Recreation's goals. Effective public-private agreements have the potential for not only mobilizing additional resources for park and recreation programs citywide, but also promoting greater effectiveness of those programs - helping us sustain a healthy park and recreation system.

While all partnership ideas will be considered, these are the current high priority areas:

  • Concessions in recreation or park facilities that improve the visitor experience
  • Recreation programming promoting physical activity
  • Capital improvements in park facilities that enhance the visitor experience
  • Programming river use and boating, as well as dock use
  • Development and operation of indoor recreation facilities (indoor soccer, tennis, etc.)
  • Installation of photovoltaic, solar water heater, and other renewable energy technologies at PP&R facilities. Potential PV sites have been identified at Multnomah Arts Center, Southwest Community Center, and Portland International Raceway.

Please review Public/Private Agreement Information, then submit your Expression of Interest using the online form.
