Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) and its 120 friends and partner groups steward your public parks system. In addition to maintaining today’s parks, PP&R is responsible for working with City Council, our Portland Parks Foundation and others, to build the parks system for the next generation. This requires planning, community input and the resources to complete the work.
We track our existing major maintenance needs and growth needs (growing our parks system to match population growth), on the PP&R Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) list. The CIP tracks projects regardless of their funding status. In fact, many projects on our CIP are unfunded.
Links to the left show projects on the CIP list divided by geographic area and project maintenance or project growth. Projects are divided geographically into the following areas as illustrated on the map:
For each geographic area, there is a maintenance list and a growth list. Note: As of first quarter 2018--we are in the process of updating all lists (expected update Spring/Summer 2018).
Parks System Development Charge revenues (SDCs) can be used to fund growth projects, but not maintenance projects. For more information on Park SDCs, please visit our SDC website.
Is there a project to grow or expand the park system that you aren’t seeing on the list? If you would like to give Commissioner Fritz feedback on your priorities for PP&R (maintenance or growth), please write her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have an idea for PP&R and have the funds (or can raise the funds), expertise, time and volunteer hours to help accomplish it? Please consider submitting a Park Proposal Application so the next available staff member may review your ideas. Click here to view Park Project Proposal Process.
