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.
Work will begin this fall to create planting beds, install fencing, and lay paths at the Gabriel Park Nature Patch. Check out the plan for the garden here.
Landscaping on the Hazeltine Park Nature Patch is finished and we're starting to plant.
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 natural elements to explore. Learn more about the project here.
Special thanks to our nature patch fans who pitched in to add over 3,000 plants!
