You're Invited!

You bring a picnic basket, or pick up something delicious to eat from a Downtown restaurant or the Gresham Farmers' Market, and we'll provide the fun with an opportunity to take a closer look at the future of Gresham parks.

Parks Picnic on the Plaza, a first-year event produced by the City in partnership with the Center for the Arts Foundation, Gresham Downtown Development Association, and the Historic Downtown Gresham Business Association, features:

  • Lively music by the Federal Cigar Jug Band
  • Old-fashioned field games – including baby races to crown the fastest future parks user!
  • Prizes
  • Photo gallery of winners from the Aug. 1 "Picture Your Parks" community photo contest
  • Information vendors representing a variety of community organizations and programs including People for Parks; EastSide United FC; El Programa Hispano; and the City's Our Parks, Our Future outreach program. Sign up to stay involved.

Our Parks, Our Future, which launched this spring, asks a simple question: What can the community do to keep Gresham parks going today, and growing to meet the needs of tomorrow?

Gresham Parks Commission to consider off-leash dog park proposal

When: Thursday June 10, 2010 6:30PM
Where: Gresham City Hall
Room 3A
1333 NW Eastman Pky
Gresham OR
Get Map!

Many cities the sizes of Gresham have off-leash dog parks that provide a real convenience and source of enjoyment to dog owners and their pets. These dog parks offer a safe and clean environment by providing an alternative to dog owners who might otherwise let their best friend run loose -- presenting a hazard to their pets and people.

Thursday, June 10, 2010 at 6:30PM the Gresham Parks Commission will consider a proposal for an off-leash dog park. This is not a dog park meeting, but rather a meeting to encourage the Commission to pass a dog park proposal.

Interested persons are encouraged to attend this meeting.
