On Saturday, August 20th, City Repair will transform O'Bryant Square in downtown Portland, at SW Park Ave and Washington Street. Known as "Paranoid Park" or 'Needle Park," this one-block zone has a bad reputation and an old-drab design. This event will re-envision what this park can look like with sustainability pronciples and what activities can be engaged in on a regular basis by doing a one-day temporary placemaking event. Partner's shaping the space include Friends of O'Bryant Square and Oregon Humanities.

Volunteers are needed to help set-up, engage activities, and take down the space. Click here to sign ip. Many hands are needed!

This transformation is a part of "Connect the Park Blocks" a one-day open street fair route along NW and SW Park Ave - from NW Hoyt to SW Market. This event will allow people to walk, stroll, jog, and visit local business between the North and South Park Blocks and be clear of parked cars and vehicle traffic. We envision a Park Avenue that is an active space open and welcome to everyone. This project will also promote the Green Loop concept. Hosted by Better Block PDX, Oregon Walks and the Green Loop Project, the goal is to increase foot traffic and build community!Facebook event page here.
