"Historic Park"

Originally intended as an extension of the South Park Blocks, the North Park Blocks were the result of a donation of five blocks the city of Portland received from John H. Couch in the year 1869. In 1904, one block was reserved for women and children, and, two years later, a new block with a playground was added. After 1924, the park fell into disrepair, but Huo Baozhu's donation of bronze elephants in 2002 breathed new life into the facility.
