NEW! Cell Phone Historical Audio Tours of CPRD Parks

Ever wonder how Crater Park got its name? Want to know if there is a water fountain at Fortune Park before you head down to Dundee to check it out? Would you like to find out about the new Schaad Park in about 60 seconds? How much do you know about significant pioneer Ewing Young, the namesake of the park on Blaine Street, and do you know it has a world-famous skatepark, nationally certified BMX track, disc golf course, and dog park?

Now you can learn about the history and features of select CPRD parks on your cell phone. Call (503) 573-4225 and follow the prompts. This is a free service from CPRD; your regular cell phone charges may apply.

Look for these signs going up in select parks with the blue Guide by Cell logo below, with the phone number for tours and another way to listen - QR codes to scan on your cell phone.

We'll be adding more parks soon, so call in again, and check our parks webpage for details.
