In 2013, a robust Laurelwood Park Vision and Master Plan was completed and approved with the intent to create a signature public space that will serve as a centerpiece for the continued development along the SE Foster Road corridor. In June of 2019, Portland Parks & Recreation Commissioner in charge, Nick Fish, allocated $1.4 million from System Development Charges (SDC) to make the master plan a reality.
January 2020 - Update
Arborists will be on site on Monday, January 27, 2020 completing root investigations to better inform the new park design, with the intent of saving existing trees. Any trees that are considered hazard (dead, dying or dangerous) per Urban Forestry and project arborist standards will require removal ahead of the park redevelopment. Any hazardous tree removal will likely occur in late January-early February 2020. Per Urban Forestry standards, any tree removal will be replaced by an appropriate tree during the park redevelopment.
Additional project updates will be provided here as they become available.
