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 is underway to create planting beds, install fencing, and lay paths at the Gabriel Park Nature Patch. Check out the plan for the garden and RSVP to the March 9th planting here.
The Brentwood-Darlington community came together on December 1st to complete planting the Hazeltine Nature Patch and rededicate the park with Richard Hazeltine and family.
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!
