Parkrose Neighborhood Association

The Parkrose Neighborhood Association was formed in 1985 with the purpose of protecting the general livability of the Parkrose Neighborhood. The area has been in transition from an agricultural to an urban environment since the first subdivision plat was filed in 1911.

Some of the main street commercial that was once served by a street car on Sandy Boulevard remains viable today. Parkrose is home to several destinations including Parkrose Hardware, Grocery Outlet, Senn's Dairy Park, Parkrose High School, and a few ethnic restaurants along Sandy Boulevard.


Meetings are the 3rd Tuesday of the month, 7pm at Russellville Grange (12105 NE Prescott).  

Next meeting is Tuesday, March 19, 2019.

Special meetings called and announced with at least one week's notice.

No meetings in August, November, or December.

Next public meeting for the Parkrose / Argay Farmland Development project: Some time the first week of April. TBA

The Rossi, Giusto and Garre Farms on NE 122nd Avenue have been family farms in the community for a century. Now the owners, working with the City of Portland, want to explore options to create something new that will serve their community for the years to come. The Parkrose-Argay Development Study will explore options to create a more complete and connected neighborhood on the 30-acre site at NE 122nd Avenue and NE Shaver Street. 

Please join us at this workshop to share your vision for the future of the area and your thoughts about how possible future development of the property can help achieve that vision.
