A passion for sustainability
& safety.

Portland’s historic North Park Blocks are a green oasis between downtown, Old Town and the Pearl. Our aim is to ensure this oasis can continue to grow, evolve, and thrive while ensuring the safety of visitors and residents alike.

A passion for the park blocks

Our mission is to preserve and enhance this historic park for all to enjoy. Here’s a few reasons why we do it.

Educations for the Arts

A passion for people & diversity

The park blocks were created for the people, by the people.

A Diverse Community

The North Park Blocks is made up of a diverse community who choose to live and work in an urban environment. We believe Portland needs to keep our city safe, sanitary and livable for everyone. While also offering compassion, kindness and services to those in need.

Helping Those in Need

This includes support for more homeless shelters and low income housing. We proudly continue to support many efforts to address homelessness including construction of Bud Clark Center, the CCC Recovery Center, new Transitions Projects and the new Blanchet House.
