The Park at the Heart of Portland’s Arts District is YOUR Park.

Friends of Congress Square Park is a volunteer-led organization invested in ensuring Congress Square Park is vibrant, welcoming and safe. By creating a place where all people can feel a sense of belonging, contribute, and have shared experiences, we’re fostering a more equitable, resilient, and pluralistic city.
