The Riverfront Park Master Plan update is in full-swing. So far, we've heard that park users and residents are interested in keeping open spaces, natural features and views, but also want event spaces, improved active play areas, access to the river, and seating along the river's edge to just enjoy the setting. A report of the input we've received at the first community meeting is now available online. A full summary of more than 850 responses to the initial online survey is also available. 

This feedback has guided the development of 3 design concepts for the park, inspired by river forms, the presence of the Willamette River, and the celebration of past, current, and future cultural uses of the park.

We would like to know what you think about these designs! Please share your thoughts by taking this second online survey by Thursday, March 8. The survey results will be used to direct the development of a single preferred concept for the park master plan.

The preferred concept, once developed, is scheduled to be presented at the next community meeting for the Riverfront Park Master Plan Update on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at Pringle Community Hall starting at 6 p.m. Please join us.
