Portland: What’s the Future of O’Bryant Square? April 10
From Keller Fountain to Jamison Square, Portland has a rich tradition of successful full-block public squares. But one of the most visible ones – O’Bryant Square – has had varied success. Initially a lively fountain plaza, after a few years the square, predominantly in off-hours, became a home for drug use and associated illegal activity. Join urban design advocate and Portland Parks Foundation executive director Randy Gragg, Pioneer Courthouse Square executive director Jennifer Polver, architect Will Ives, and Portland Parks & Recreation in a moderated panel discussion about the future of O’Bryant Square.
