Planning for Parks

  • The City Council is exploring ways to expand and improve Gresham’s park system.

    The project “Parks Facilities, Assets and Opportunities” is a multi-year Council Work Plan item.

    Designing undeveloped parks – summer/fall 2019

    The City is creating plans for Gresham’s undeveloped neighborhood and community parks. Community meetings are planned this year for each park.

    Today, Gresham has six undeveloped parks that typically include open space or natural areas and do not have recreational amenities. Two of the six parks are classified as "community parks" that serve the entire city and provide recreation for all age groups, from easy picnicking and walking to active sports and play areas.
