On Saturday, Nick joined community members, Commissioner Amanda Fritz, and Parks staff in celebrating the opening of a new playground in Couch Park.
The project addresses the safety and accessibility of the playground, which hadn’t been improved since 1975.
It’s one of over 50 parks that will receive upgrades as part of the 2014 Parks Replacement Bond. The new playground is the fifth to be completed under the bond.
Special thanks to the Portland voters for passing the Parks Replacement Bond; to Commissioner Amanda Fritz for championing the bond during her tenure as Parks Commissioner; to John Blasher from Metro’s Parks & Nature Department for speaking at the event; to Cody Goldberg of Harper’s Playground; and to the community members and kids who came out to play!
