John Luby Disc Golf Exploration Project

A goal basket for catching disc golf discs

In 2022, Portland Parks & Recreation staff surveyed and identified parks with available space to accommodate disc golf courses. John Luby Park was designated as a park that fit this need. A short, family friendly disc golf course is being proposed that would not affect the existing permanent pathways, playground, nature patch, or impede usage by other park users.

We want to hear from you!

Please consider taking this short survey.

Funding and Timeline (subject to change)

The whole construction of the project is estimated at under $20,000.

John Luby Park Nature Patch

John Luby Nature Patch Feb 2023
Thanks to the neighborhood for helping plant the patch!

This small natural garden space was created in 2023 in partnership with Portland's Bureau of Environmental Services. It features a pallet of Douglas Fir forest understory plants such as Snowberry, Sword Fern, Oregon Grape, Salal, Vine Maple, and Ocean Spray. The garden repurposed an underutilized and overshaded area of turf within the park's dense stand of Doug Fir.
