The April Hill Park Project

Via The Friends of April Hill Park (Facebook):

On May 31, 2013, Metro Council announced its award of a $83,059 Nature in Neighborhoods Capital Grant toward the cost of constructing a boardwalk, two bridges, and a wildlife observation platform in the wetland area of the park. The goal of this project is to provide safe access to the wetland for Maplewood School students, neighbors, and other visitors while protecting habitat for sensitive amphibians and plants. Letters of support for the project were sent in by Maplewood PTA Outdoor Explorers Committee, Art4Life, Wildwood Preschool, SW Watershed Resource Center, SW Trails, and others. The grant provides about 1/3 of the project cost. Another 1/2 of the project cost will be contributed through a combination of Portland Parks & Recreation funds and matching volunteer time from the Friends of April Hill Park, SW Watershed Resource Center, and professionals who have committed in-kind services to the project. We have less than 1/6 of the project cost left to fundraise! Ready to help?

To help, donate here. April Hill Park is a charming little park in SW Portland. We’ve been there once before, but plan to go back!
