Cully Park is the culmination of a partnership between Verde, a Cully based non-profit that serves communities by building environmental wealth, and Portland Parks & Recreation to turn a landfill into a 25-acre park in one of Portland’s most park-deprived neighborhoods. Bring the family, spend time with your neighbors, and help us celebrate this incredible park. We hope to see you there!
