Portland Parks & Recreation is improving the landscape of Alberta Park with a more ecologically diverse native landscape. An acre-sized stand of Douglas fir in the center of the park (between the playground and the dog off leash area) is being transformed into a lush understory landscape. The Alberta Park nature patch will include forest plantings, an accessible path, seating, and natural elements to explore. These enhancements will not only add beauty and natural exploration opportunities to your park, but improve habitat for birds and other native pollinators.
The Alberta Park nature patch is in progress; with elements including removal and incorporation of hazardous trees, installation of the path, and construction of a split-rail fence expected to be completed by the end of the year. Planting will take place in phases this fall until spring of 2018.
Help create this space!
Join the neighborhood on Saturday, February 24, 2018, from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM to plant this nature patch. Please click here to RSVP with the Columbia Slough Watershed Council.
