  • Normally there's not much to see here, but we walked by lunchtime on Monday and they had an awesome farmer's market from 10-2 with fresh fruit, flowers, and of course food trucks.  more »

  • A nice and cozy square to just to sit on the steps and get your bearings. Easy to this square to use as a starting point to explore the city. When we were there gave the Oregon crusaders Orchestra a great mini concert.

  • This NOT a "park" per se. It is a one square block of designated gathering space, nicknamed "Portland's Living Room " it demarcated by the entire block being covered in in bricks, on a former historical site of a glorious Victorian era hotel. There is a small corner on the NW side, street level, below the Starbucks that is quite interesting, and few know of its existence. It's a mini amphitheater, but also if you stand in in the direct center of it, speak or sing, you can actually hear yourself as if you were on speakers, as well as what your voice actually sounds like to others, as we are unable to hear ourselves as others do (which is why so many people think they can sing wonderfully)
  • One of my favorite sights walking around downtown was this Pioneer square. I was delighted to see a large cultural gathering and seemed like a happening spot for activities on the weekend. I spent about 30 minutes here with a coffee people watching.
  • My neighbor and friend stopped at the Starbucks located there. It's a nice one, always busy, but great, fast, and accurate customer service. It is also easily accessible to people with various disabilities. The bathroom (for customers only) is a little odd though, when outside of it, it appears that it is a cage in the lobby. While inside, it still feels awkward, and like your in the middle of the room, despite the 4 walks and ceiling, odd, LOL! We both had the same feeling.
  • The hub of Portland, though I wouldn't call it a park. The square contains a satellite TV studio, a Starbucks beautifully made of glass and wrought iron, the TRIMET transit office/Portland Visitors Center and is the central boarding point for all rail lines (Orange, yellow, green, blue, and red). It's also home to numerous pop up events, private and public, and during December it's home to Portland's Christmas tree.
  • Love to walk around the square. Nice spot to take pics and visit the information center. Theres also a Starbucks next to it.
