POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Piccolo Park Fountain Dedication - July 27, 2012

By David Nguyen


Join Portland Parks & Recreation and the Hosford-Abernethy Neighborhood community at the Piccolo Park Drinking Fountain Community Dedication & Ribbon Cutting this Saturday.


This project is a great example of how Portland succeeds when neighbors unite with community leaders to get the job done. During this challenging time, neighbors stepped forward to raise the $7,000 needed for the fountain.

The inspiration for this project began several months ago, when local developer Randy Rapaport visited the park with his 4 year-old Godchild.  Rapaport researched how much it would cost, and how to coordinate with PP&R to make it a reality.

Breakfast treats will be provided by neighborood businesses, including Little T American Baker, Spielman Coffee Roasters and Stumptown Coffee.
