Conceptual rendering of the nature patch looking east.
This summer through fall, Portland Parks & Recreation is improving Hazeltine Park with a nature patch - adding beautiful natural features to explore, improving habitat for birds and insects, and creating places for people to enjoy.
The project will be focused around the edges of the park to maintain the central lawn area for activities and will include:
- adding a variety of flowering native and ornamental plants to support pollinators,
- replacing unhealthy and invasive trees with long-lived trees for habitat,
- improving the picnic area surface, and
- several nature spots to gather and relax on logs and boulders.
Help create this space!
Additional planting and mulching parties to be scheduled for winter 2019 - stay tuned.
