Gabriel Park Adding an Inclusive Play Area!

By Sharon Bloudek, June 12, 2019

In my experience, every great neighborhood has a great park. I just sold a house near Gabriel Park and it has too many amenities to mention! The size alone makes it a green beating heart of many neighborhoods in its vicinity. Spacious at ninety-one acres, it is filled with all kinds of sports courts, skate park, baseball field, and numerous play areas and trails for you and for your children and your pups too (off-leash areas). Located on the edge of the park, the SW Community Center hums with activity with varied classes, camps and their indoor pool.

And good news has just been announced-

Gabriel Park playground will become Portland Parks & Recreation’s newest inclusive play area. This will include a universally designed playground and pathway and parking improvements. PP&R expects the play area to be completed in late 2020, after the public involvement process for the design which began this Spring.

Begin your journey exploring the park at SW 45th Ave & Vermont Street, and if you’d like a tour around some of its neighborhoods don’t hesitate to call me at (503) 701-1000.
