The Hosford-Abernethy Neighborhood (HAND), along with neighbors, has recognized the need for a water fountain at Piccolo Park in Southeast Portland. Located near many homes and businesses between SE Division Street and SE Clinton Street, this park offers a children's playground and wide stretches of grass. However, it lacks a water fountain. Together with area residents, HAND has organized a fundraiser to install a standard blue water fountain that includes two drinking stations and a lower pet basin.
The neighborhood hopes to get this fountain installed by Summer 2012. Tax-deductible donations may be made through the Hosford Abernethy Neighborhood Development website or sent to the following address:

Thanks to the volunteers in HAND for working to address a need, as Neighborhood Associations so often do.
