Spring Garden Park- Bringing nature into play

Spring Garden Park- Bringing nature into play.


A recent client just bought a house on SW Dolph Ct. A location that has wonderful new park. Like most good things it took many years of planning and hard work by local neighbors to make Spring Garden Park a reality, and they just celebrated their first anniversary this past month.

It’s a neighborhood park like no other, created to encourage active and creative play. Very organic in design, it uses its landscape to create natural areas of play-  Slopes on the site have been used for slides. A giant twig nest is ready to be explored and admired from afar on its own hill. Logs, paths, climbing webs and a splash pad offer places to hop, skip, climb and jump! The design includes traditional items such as swings, but they also preserved the storm water basin, wildlife habitat and above-ground creek.

It was built for and by the community in partnership with Portland Parks and Recreation. But the real story began in 2008 when the first call was made to the City to invest in the park. Friends of Spring Garden Park spent many years building support. They hosted ice cream socials, plant sales, story walks and other community events. Their efforts made this happen. If you are interested in finding a community that cares this much, or simply a place that has a great park, just give me a call at 503-701-1000.
