The Newest Park In Portland Is Opening This Weekend And You’re Going To Love It

East Portland is getting a wonderful new park, and it is opening this weekend to the public for the first time. Luuwit View Park, drawing its name from the Upper Cowlitz word for Mt. St. Helens, “Luuwit,” features awe-inspiring views of its namesake mountain, as well as an accessible playground, a new community garden, walking trails and a fenced in dog park.
