It’s pretty impressive, what an old public storage facility can become: two pretty acres of green space in Portland’s South
Waterfront district. Surrounded by residential high-rises, Caruthers Park is a quick streetcar ride from downtown. Stroll
beside wetlands with colorful purple and yellow flowers. Spread a blanket on the sloping lawn, compete on the bocce court,
let the kids frolic in the spray fountain, and clamber over wooden beams stacked like pickup sticks. In summer, family-themed
movies play on a big inflatable screen.
