Spring Garden Park

Spring Garden Park improvements are now complete! 
3332 SW Spring Garden Street, Portland, Oregon

Project Update—March 2016

After years of discussion, planning, and anticipation we are delighted to inform you that construction for Spring Garden Park is moving forward! City Council has approved the contract for Paul Brothers, Inc. They will be the general contractor completing both the park development and street improvements. We currently are anticipating construction to begin at the end of June 2016. Once construction fences go up, the park will be closed for the duration of construction for your safety. Construction is anticipated to last approximately eight months and we anticipate a grand opening celebration in late spring 2018. Thank you for your continued patience and support as we move through the construction process. We are excited to be delivering you this wonderful park that we hope will provide improved recreation opportunities and foster increased community gatherings.

Spring Garden Park is an open, 4.65 acre undeveloped site that slopes dramatically downhill to the north at SW Spring Garden Street. The park is part of a constellation of parks in the Southwest Neighborhoods, Inc. Association between SW Spring Garden Street to the north and SW Dolph Court to the south near Multnomah Village.

The park was acquired in 1999 and the City completed the Master Plan in January of 2003. Recreation features of the 2003 Master Plan include:

  • A children’s playground along SW Dolph Court;
  • A sitting area along SW Dolph Court;
  • Walking connections between SW Dolph Court and Spring Garden Street with an ADA accessible pathway system;
  • Improvement and maintenance of the hillside area as a passive recreation area with native grasses and other appropriate plant materials; and
  • Protection and improvement of the habitat value and the environmental integrity of the natural resource areas with associated resident education regarding the same.

This park in located in an area of Southwest Portland that is considered to be parks deficient. The park will serve 1,359 households. 128 of those households are not currently within ½ mile of a park.
