Join us for an open house public forum Thursday June 4th, 5PM-8PM at Sun Rise Center at 189th & E Busnside for happy hour tapas and beverages. Share your support for the Springwater Parks & Community district.
We know parks, green spaces and recreation help us maintain our quality of life while attracting families, industry and top-tier development. Those families and family-wage jobs then spread the wealth in terms of better property values, rejuvenated neighborhoods, lower crime rates, less substance abuse and fewer demands on public services.

  • We are volunteers
  • We have secured funding
  • Now we need you!

This is not a political movement, but a grass-roots one determined to build on what East Multnomah County already has going for it — beautiful vistas and buttes, great schools and engaged citizens who value economic efficiency.
