Cathedral Park

Cathedral Park is a 23.09-acre developed park site in the St Johns neighborhood of north Portland. The site is challenging because of its size, environmental conditions, waterfront location, intense use, proximity to residential development, programmatic issues, and site constrained potential for redevelopment. The park is one of few riverfront parks in the city and is one of the most popular, especially during the summer.
