Alberta Park Nature Patch

Alberta Park Pano East

Alberta Park Site Plan

Portland Parks & Recreation is improving Alberta Park with a more ecologically diverse natural landscape. An acre-sized stand of Douglas fir in the center of the park (between the playground and the dog off leash area) has been transformed into a lush understory setting. The Alberta Park nature patch features forest plantings, an accessible gravel path, nurse logs, root wads, boulders and more. These enhancements not only add beauty and natural elements to explore, but improve habitat for birds and other native pollinators.
