Bringing nature to neighborhoods and enhancing ecological value.

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 complete! The Alberta Park nature patch features an understory forest landscape with lots of flowering plants to support pollinators, an accessible gravel path, and fun natural elements to explore. Learn more about the project here.

Special thanks to our nature patch fans who came out in February, April, and May to add over 3,000 plants!
