More About Hotels near North Park Blocks...

Getting Active on Your Portland Visit

Over the years, the North Park Blocks evolved from a residential space to one that felt inviting to locals. Trees were planted and recreational areas were put in, making it more popular and giving it more character. The city was gifted with a full-size Shang Dynasty replica statue of elephants from Huo Baozhu, a Chinese businessman, and it was put in the North Park Blocks for children to interact with them.

Now, you can also find other appealing features here. The North Park Blocks have a basketball court, bocce ball court, play areas for the kids with fun rubberized surfaces, other statues and walking paths. Around the historical blocks you’ll find Portland landmarks including Powell’s City of Books, the Roseland Theater, Providence Park where the Portland Timbers soccer team play and Chinatown where the Lan Su Chinese Garden is located. A short walk away will find you walking along the Willamette River, browsing stalls at the Portland Saturday Market or standing in line for a bacon maple bar – or some other original combination – at VooDoo Doughnut.
