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!

When criminals flee from the police they sometimes evade the patrol officers who are pursuing them.

  • Who can follow them when they think they are free from capture?
  • Who can watch them as the drive recklessly through the city?
  • Who sees them run through backyards in the middle of the night?

Join East Portland Involved Citizens (EPIC) when Portland Police Bureau’s Chief Pilot, Sergeant Josh Goldschmidt, will answer these and other questions as he explains the workings of the Air Support Unit. 

Other agenda items:

  • Vision for East Precinct
  •  Name Recognition Interaction
