Portland Parks & Recreation and the Errol Heights Park project team invites neighbors to attend an upcoming public meeting to review concepts and designs for the Play and Skate elements of the park.
This meeting is an opportunity for the design team at Mayer/Reed to share their initial concepts and designs for these two important elements of the park, and get valuable feedback and suggestions from the public to ensure that the park can best meet the needs of the Brentwood-Darlington community.
Specifically, we would like to discuss:
· Are the play features inclusive of children of all abilities?
· Does the skate feature meet the needs various users including, younger/ inexperienced skaters, those with wheelchairs, scooters and/ or BMX bikes?
Bring your friends, families, neighbors or anyone else who is interested in the future of Errol Heights park! Agenda below.

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!
