Hazeltine Park Ribbon Cutting and Planting Event a Huge Success!

On Saturday, December 1st, Dick Hazeltine cut the ribbon on his namesake park with Portland Parks and Recreation Project Manager Eric Rosewall.

Volunteers from the Johnson Creek Watershed, Scout Pack 523, Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association, and more worked through the rainy morning to beautify this community space.

A memorial tree to Dick’s late wife, Opal Hazeltine, who was instrumental in the park’s formation, was planted in approximately the spot her desk occupied when the space was home to the community policing building.

Longtime neighbor and BDNA board member, Malcolm Hancock, presented Dick Hazeltine with a model swing set for the park.

Be sure to visit Hazeltine Park’s completed playscape area and join us in the spring to finish the planting!
