Built by the Multnomah Athletic Club in 1926 and acquired by the City in 1966, Providence Park Stadium is known today as home to the Portland Thorns and Portland Timbers. This historic stadium hosts about 150 events per year, including professional sports games, concerts, youth camps and business events.
In 2019 the Timbers added three new levels to the east side of the stadium and expanded capacity from 21,144 to 25,218, using an estimated $75 million in private funding.
In 2020, the City worked with a consultant team of architects and engineers to complete the Americans with Disabilities Act refinement plan for Providence Park. The plan analyzed 120 barriers that required solutions to meet ADA compliance standards, as well as cost estimates for each solution. The Spectator Venues Program will work with the operators to incorporate these improvements into future projects wherever possible.
