Party in the Park!

World Forestry Center, Cheatham Hall
Help us shape Washington Park for the next 25 years.
Review the proposed Washington Park master plan options
and let us know what you think.
Do you love visiting Washington Park, or do you avoid it? Or maybe you think the park is for someone else, but not for you? We want to know. Give us your feedback on the proposed master plan concepts.
Washington Park is a Portland icon, and beloved by many. Now we have a chance to make it better and more inviting for all Portlanders. We’re looking for community members to shape the future of Washington Park by reviewing two master plan concepts, and giving us your feedback.
We want to make sure Washington Park is YOUR park!
Can't make it in person? We will have an online survey available after April 7 to leave your comments and make a lasting mark on Washington Park.

Washington Park is “Portland’s backyard” with 450 acres of beautiful gardens and natural areas, and many of the City’s key attractions, including the International Rose Test Garden, Oregon Zoo, Portland Japanese Garden, and Hoyt Arboretum. We’re currently planning for the future of this iconic park by updating its master plan. The final master plan for Washington Park will be completed by winter 2017.
