Portland Parks & Recreation's new program brings nature to neighborhood parks. We're adding nature patches to developed park landscapes to provide natural experiences for people and habitat for wildlife. Nature patches will help create unique park spaces that support native pollinators, reduce maintenance, provide education and exploration opportunities, and foster collaboration.
The first Ecologically Sustainable Landscapes project is nearly finished at Alberta Park.
The Alberta Park nature patch has forest plantings, an accessible gravel path, and fun natural elements. These enhancements not only add beauty and natural exploration opportunities to your park, but improve habitat for birds, butterflies, and other native pollinators.
Special thanks to our nature patch fans who came out in February to add over 1,600 plants!
Help us complete this space. Join us to finish planting the nature patch on Saturday, May 5, 2018. Click here to learn more about the project and sign up to attend the planting.
