Hazeltine Park Planting and Ribbon Cutting

After a summer of radical landscape alteration, Hazeltine Park is looking fantastic and we need your help to complete this beautiful naturescape.

Join the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood with the Johnson Creek Watershed Council and Portland Parks & Recreation to install hundreds of native, pollinator-friendly plants and cut the ribbon on the new natural landscape with our guest of honor and park namesake, Dick Hazeltine.  We will also be planting a tree to honor Mr. Hazeltine’s late wife, Opal Hazeltine, who was instrumental in the development of the original park.  (There will be a second event to finish spring planting on March 23rd.)
