Three Objectives

  • Change the negative image Portlanders have, particularly decision makers, of the people who live here; 

  • Build a gathering place for our neighbors to get to know one another better in the context of mutual love and respect for dogs; and 

  • Address waste issues that may be killing our trees in a neighborhood designated as a heat island with a very low tree canopy (Scoop on Poop). Opportunity abounds to make a dog ballpark that recycles the waste and saves trees.

About Old Town Chinatown 

This neighborhood is in the Central City and home to about 4,000 people and another 6,000 or so employees or "day-timers" who work in businesses and non-profits, large and small.  It is a redevelopment area of the City and as such it is heavy on surface parking lots, neglected buildings, and is (officially) a heat island.  Many of our neighbors live on very limited incomes in affordable housing. Others are housed in supportive care, transitional housing, or shelters.  While

the neighborhood is best known as the entertainment district - with all that implies - it is, in reality, Portland's Caring Community as over 57% of the housing units support drug recovery programs and the homeless.

    • Our General Manager, John Black, is working with the Old Town Community Association,​ in particular

the Land Use Committee co-chair, Mr. Peter Englander for guidance on how to ensure this​ project is on the agendas of Prosper Portland and the Association as a community project.   


A major objective is to confirm the availability of our first choice for a Dog Ballpark, a property owned by Prosper Portland, the redevelopment agency of the City of Portland.
