Laurelwood Park is Getting a Makeover

We are very excited to announce that Laurelwood Park is getting its long-awaited makeover! The last time we shared news about this project was waaaay back in 2013.

The result of the 2013 efforts was the Laurelwood Park Vision and Master Plan. Portland Parks & Recreation contacted us recently to jointly host, along with Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood Association, an Open House.

Join us! This is your chance to ask questions about this exciting project.

In 2013, a robust master plan was completed and approved for Laurelwood Park.
