Petition for Pier Park Restrooms

Preamble
Over 10,000 visitors enjoy Pier Park each year. This includes the hundreds who play the World Class Disc Golf course each week, teams of baseball, softball and soccer players on the Pier Park fields and skateboarders riding the Pier Park half pipe. Joggers, walkers and families with children enjoy Pier Park daily. The beautiful forest canopy makes Pier Park exceptional with paved trails meandering through the trees. The children’s playground and spray pool, basketball and tennis courts are all shaded and inviting in the summer months.

A new bridge and an ADA trail, dedicated this year, now connects visitors to Chimney Park and the off-leash dog park area. Pier Park is also a frequent filming location for the television series Grimm.

With so much to offer, Pier Park must have improved restroom facilities capable of serving the basic sanitation needs of our visitors. Currently the restrooms are substandard on many levels:
- Peeling paint and rusting walls
- Lacking hot water for hand washing
- Not ADA compliant or accessible
- Too few for the overwhelming amount of visitors they are meant to serve.

Petition
We the undersigned, petition Portland Parks and Recreation and the City of Portland to designate funding to upgrade the restroom facilities to provide safe, clean and ADA accessible public bathrooms for Pier Park in North Portland.

Spring bloom at Pier Park

Spring at Pier Park

Our next meeting is Monday, May 19th at 6:30 pm at the St. Johns Community Center. All are welcome.

Our accomplishments include convincing City Hall to keep Pier Pool open, the annual Pier Park Pick-Up sponsored by SOLVE, working with local companies, such as Next Adventure, to improve the disc golf course a Pier Park and purchasing playground equipment. We are proud to say that Pier Park is safer than any other Portland park of comparable size. The hundreds of regular disc golf players who play the course that winds around and through Pier Park keep it that way.
