POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Grand Opening of The Fields Park - May 17, 2013

 

This afternoon, Nick was proud to attend the Grand Opening of The Fields Park in Northwest Portland!

 

The Fields was created through a partnership with Portland Parks & Recreation, the Portland Development Commission, and the Pearl District Neighborhood Association. The Fields is the third park outlined in the Portland River District Park System Urban Design Framework Study. The four parks included in the Framework were Jamison Square,Tanner Springs Park, The Fields Park, and a potential Riverfront Park.

 

The celebration featured a Native American blessing of the land, a poetry reading by Founding Co-chair of the Pacific Northwest College of Art Barry Sanders, and artwork done by local school children.

 

Along with being a fantastic outdoor space for people, The Fields is a great place for your dog. The Fields was created with our four-legged friends in mind. It features different amenities for dogs of all shapes and sizes.

 

The Fields Park is located at NW 10th and Overton. Come out and play!
