What is now known as the Pearl District was once a wetland and lake fed by streams that flowed down from the nearby hills in southwest Portland. These wooded hillsides provided a natural filter for the streams, cleansing the water as it made its way to the Willamette River. This park sits about 20 feet above the former lake surface. The design of the park attempts to recapture the area’s past with its native wetlands and flowing runnels.
