Nearby parks and recreation:
- Sumner-Albina Park is the only park located physically in the Humboldt neighborhood. Though small, it serves as an event space for a very active and involved community in the Albina area. The park also features a stage and large mural painted by local artists, Chris Johnson and Jo Jackson.
- Peninsula Park is a formally designed neighborhood park, typical of the early 1900s. It includes the city’s first public rose garden (contributing heavily towards Portland’s eventual moniker) and first community center, a historically designated bandstand, and Portland’s second oldest playground. Planned by renowned Oregon architects Ellis Lawrence and Ormond R. Bean, the park was a result of Portland’s 1912 ‘City Beautiful’ movement. Completed in 1913, much remains of the original features, including the lantern-style streetlights, the stone pillars, vast brickwork, and the 100-year-old fountain in the center of the rose garden.
