We have begun work to refresh the vision for Errol Heights Park and shape a $5 million improvement project. The new park will include areas for play, sports, picnics, and gardening. A Community Advisory Committee has been appointed to help guide the public process to set priorities for park improvements. Events in the park to engage residents and park enthusiasts will be held this summer. Funds for the new park come from System Development Charges for Parks, Trails, and Natural Areas.
Located in SE Portland, this 16-acre park includes a natural area, undeveloped park space, and a community garden. This project will engage the community to update the 2005 Master Plan, and set community-supported priorities for the construction of park improvements.
1,477 households are within a half-mile walking distance of Errol Heights Park, located at SE 52nd Avenue and Tenino Street, in the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood. The current allocation of $5.3 million will allow Portland Parks & Recreation to realize the first phase of desired improvements to the park and natural area. Funding to design and build the next step in development comes from System Development Charges for parks, trails and natural areas.
Improvements to Errol Heights Park may include:
A diverse group of community advisors will soon be recruited to help shape the future of the park. Park enthusiasts, gardeners, neighbors, and natural area explorers of all ages, abilities and backgrounds are encouraged to apply. A community engagement schedule will be available soon. Everyone is welcome to participate!
Portland Parks & Recreation is coordinating with neighborhood street and storm water improvement projects led by the Portland Bureau of Transportation and the Bureau of Environmental Services.
