People For Parks Oregon

PEOPLE FOR PARKS

History

People for Parks was developed in 1974 by concerned citizens to improve community parks; it quickly became a vital community partner and built many local park projects as well as supporting park bonds and levies. Years later ... in 2003 we implemented our strategic planning and partnerships that has allowed People for Parks to work alongside residents of East Multnomah County to develop projects and programs. People for Parks has always partnered with the community and have offered support of projects / programs which promote health, education and safety. Most recent projects include:

• The Children’s Play Area at Vance Park along with the Imaginative Children’s Garden
• City Kids Programs
• Reynolds School District After School Programs
• REC Mobile Program
• East County Urban Parks & Tree Summit
