Parks Replacement Bond

"I am very grateful to the voters of Portland for approving the bond measure. It will help meet crucial needs across our parks system, while remaining sensitive to Portlanders’ ability to pay. The funds from this bond won’t completely close the gap our parks and facilities face, but it will make a major difference. I will continue looking at ways to address the needs of our parks system." 
Commissioner Amanda Fritz

Parks Replacement Bond funds are for urgent repairs and other capital costs, not park operations. The measure authorized up to $68 million in general obligation bonds to make repairs and improvements and prevent more closures like we’ve seen at Couch playground and the Maple Trail in Forest Park. The bond is subject to an oversight committee, annual reports, and audits.
