E205 initiative reaches new milestones
September 27, 2012
By David Nguyen
A new playground is taking shape at the East Portland Community Center - construction is expected to be complete by the end of next month.
On Saturday, join Nick, Portland Parks & Recreation Director Mike Abbaté, and community members to celebrate another new playground in East Holladay Park from 11 am - 12 pm.
These new playgrounds are part of our E205 initiative, which brings parks improvements to underserved neighborhoods in East Portland. 40% of Portland families with children live in East Portland neighborhoods, but there are fewer parks for them to enjoy. To date, ten parks - including East Holladay - have received new amenities including playgrounds, benches, water fountains, new trails, and garden plots.
