Better Naito Freight Loading Zones

Safe & predictable loading and unloading of freight is one of the key goals of Better Naito. 

We ask for the public's understanding that at times larger trucks will need to make use of the space. The summer event season is a busy time at Waterfront Park. This is a good thing. We ask for everyone’s patience during Better Naito.

Vehicles may only load in Better Naito if they are associated Portland Saturday Market or with a permitted Waterfront event and are displaying a Better Naito loading permit issued from PBOT. Better Naito loading permits limit loading to 30min in duration. Loading is prohibited weekdays 7-9am, 12-1pm, and 4-7pm.

PBOT’s Parking Enforcement officers will be citing vehicles that fail to abide by permit requirements. If you have concerns about a vehicle loading in Better Naito, contact Parking Enforcement on the enforcement request line: 503-823-5195.

Freight Loading Zone weekday times:

  • 9:00AM - 4:00PM

  • 7:00PM - 7:00AM

Better Naito loading permits limit loading to 30min in duration.
