What is Gateway Green?

Gateway Green is one of Portland’s newest park acquisition - 25 acres of unused open space to be developed into a world-class recreation destination. Located in East Portland on the site of the former Rocky Butte Jail, Gateway Green will cultivate social equity, demonstrate innovative urban habitat restoration and energize local economic development.
