From City Commissioner Nick Fish:
Dear Friends of the Summer Playground Program,
I am pleased to announce that all 23 playground sites have been saved for this summer.
The Mayor’s “back-to-basics” budget proposal dedicates $100,000 toward this vital program. We have raised additional public and private funds to make up the difference.
I will continue to work with the Mayor to prioritize funding for programs that serve our most vulnerable residents and offer low-cost opportunities for children, families, and older adults to stay healthy and active in our community – especially during these tough times.
The City relies more than ever on our partners who volunteer their time and energy to make our city great. Whether you participate in a neighborhood association, volunteer with a friends group, or advocate for the things that matter most to you and your community – you are making a difference.
Thanks to everyone who joined with us in supporting the restoration of funding for the Summer Playground Program, including my dedicated team at Parks.
Commissioner Nick Fish | 1221 SW 4th Avenue, Room 240 | Portland, Oregon 97204
