On August 1, 6:30-8:30pm, at the 72nd Ave Park Blocks between Beech and Failing, we will join neighborhoods all across America for the National Night Out. The event includes frozen treats, music, and a community potluck. This event is a way to enjoy the Park Blocks, listen to some tunes, and greet your neighbors. All that & the ice cream’s free (while it lasts), compliments of your Roseway Neighborhood Association.
Come out for friends, food and music by Roseway musicians “Chasing Ebenezer” doing a “busking jam” with family and friends.
Enjoy an evening just hangin’ with the neighbors in the hood.
See y’all there!
Portland Bureau of Transportation is considering livability projects around the city. One proposal would create a 14 foot wide paved path through the center of the NE 72nd Ave park blocks. This is in the exploratory phase and no solid plans are being considered. In other words, this is a perfect time to weigh in and make thoughtful suggestions.

A tree planting adventure has been scheduled by the city on March 12th in the 72nd Avenue park blocks between Failing and Beech. Below are the plans for removal and replanting.

So, as some trees must be removed, others will be taking their place.
Here are the plans at this point:
