Parks Commissioner Carmen Rubio recently allocated $1.5M in System Development Charges (SDCs) to supplement the initial project funding for a total project budget of $2M. The additional funding will allow the completion of a new skateboarding area at the popular Southeast Portland park. Planning for the skateboarding area is beginning in the Spring of 2021, with construction slated to begin in the Spring of 2023, and a targeted completion date of late Fall 2024.
PP&R conducted significant research to determine the need for skateparks. Please see the 2008 Skatepark System Plan for more information.
Berrydale Park Skatepark Project Open House - July 15, 2021

Our Berrydale Park Skatepark Project Survey will remain open until Monday, August 2 at 5:00pm. Once the survey is complete, we will be reviewing you valuable input and developing a design to review in the Fall (Date TBD). At that time, once again, you will have the opportunity to share thoughts and feedback on that proposed design.
