NPB Playground Renovation to Begin

North Park Blocks Playground Renovation

Portland Parks & Recreation is excited to announce that construction on the Parks Replacement Bond-funded renovation of the North Park Blocks playground will start in early August!

Faison Construction is now on board as the contractor for this project.

Construction fencing installation starting on Thursday, August 2

Starting Thursday, park visitors will see fencing go up around the playground to secure the site for construction. The Park Replacement Bond-funded improvements will include a new playground with fully accessible rubber play surfacing, new play equipment, and ADA accessibility pathway improvements. Expected completion is late fall 2018. The playground is located on the park block between NW Davis and Couch Streets. During the closure of this playground, other nearby playgrounds are The Fields Park at 1099 NW Overton Street and Wallace Park at 1516 NW 26th Avenue.

Other construction impacts

The sidewalks along the playground will generally remain open. Later in the project, some work will occur to make the sidewalks more accessible, so there may be signed closures at that time. For your safety, please respect all detour routes.

Two trees that have safety issues will be removed at the beginning of this project, as discussed during the design and public involvement process. One of the trees, a black locust, is considered hazardous by PP&R arborists, due to its leaning condition. The second tree, a sweet gum (well known for the spiky balls it drops in the fall) is located within the construction area and has been deemed to be incompatible with providing a safe playground and accessible play experience. Two new American Elms will be planted at the end of construction as replacements in more appropriate locations.
 

The improvements will include a new playground with accessible rubber play surfacing, new play equipment, and ADA accessibility pathway improvements. Parks users will see construction mobilization begin in early August, with expected completion in late fall 2018. The playground is located on the park block between NW Davis and Couch Streets. During the closure of this playground, other nearby playgrounds are The Fields Park at 1099 NW Overton Street and Wallace Park at 1516 NW 26th Avenue.
