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!

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.)
