Parks and Community Centers Committee

The Parks and Community Centers Committee acts as a forum in the community to promote parks, community centers; public spaces such as squares and monuments; open spaces of any types, including cemeteries, golf courses, and school fields; and recreational and educational programs of Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R). More specifically, the committee:
  • Develops working relationships with PP&R that allow the community a voice in decisions that affect parks and park programs in SW Portland.
  • Participates in citywide planning projects like Parks 2020.
  • Participates in and promotes neighborhood participation in master planning for individual parks.
  • Supports efforts to acquire new park space and build new community centers.
  • Monitors school district actions to help preserve school district buildings, playgrounds, and fields.
  • Recommends actions and positions, as appropriate, to the SWNI Board.
