Ensuring access to leisure opportunities and enhancing Portland's natural beauty.
We are the City of Portland's parks and recreation department. We care for 247 parks including the nation's largest wooded city park (Forrest Park) and the world's smallest (Mill Ends). We offer affordable recreational opportunities for folks of all ages and are the careful stewards of nearly six thousand acres of natural areas. And of course we are home to some of the most beautiful roses anywhere.
