Laurelhurst Park – The trees and pond and playground Oh Yeah!
Post # 30 of 101 cool Portland places The Laurelhurst Park.
I love the Laurelhurst Park for so many reasons. My last visit there I brought my guitar and just strummed away along the edge of the pond. The water looked a little murky but it just inspired me to write a dark and moody song. I also brought some food and had my own little picnic on the grass. The sun was shining and rollerbladers and bikers were everywhere.
There is a kids playground area, a birthday party spot near the bathrooms as well as a basketball and tennis courts. My friends and I will bring a disc and play a little bit of Ultimate Frisbee on the grassy field area. It’s the perfect spot to take a stroll around the pond, enjoy the views and walk your stressful work week away.
I give Laurelhurst Park in the Laurelhurst neighborhood two thumbs up,
and two legs up too while relaxing on the grass too.
In between SE Stark and Ankeney and between SE 33rd and 39th.
