Year acquired



The park is named after pioneer Matthew Patton who owned land in the West Hills as well as in North Portland. Before 1913, North Interstate Avenue was called North Patton Avenue. When the street was connected to a new bridge over the Columbia River, the City renamed it to reflect its new function.
