The South Park Blocks in downtown Portland, set aside for public use in 1852, are the city’s first parks — forming a green corridor through the cultural heart of the city. Surrounded by the Portland Art Museum, the Oregon Historical Center, Portland’5 Centers for the Arts and Portland State University, the blocks are a lovely garden backdrop for Portland’s lectures, concerts and collections.
