Historical Information
In 2008, the Portland Development Commission (PDC) and Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) purchased three adjacent properties totaling 4.2 acres. PDC and PP&R currently share joint title of the parcels. Based on community input and previous planning efforts, it was determined that the now vacant site should become a 3.2 acre neighborhood park, and 1 acre of complementary mixed-use development.

The park was constructed in part with funding from Prosper Portland (formerly the Portland Development Commission.) Harper's Playground participated in the design process and contributed funding to the Universally accessible play area.
