38880398_1557338550108494_r.jpegHello! We're Joe Saraceno and Ben Dudley. We are residents of Rose City Park and Madison South neighborhoods and founders of the Rose City Park Playground Project! 

We are both civic minded professionals who love our communities and the great city of Portland, Oregon. We're working to bring people together to revitalize the Rose City Park playground in an effort to build a stronger and vibrant community of neighbors helping neighbors. But we need your help…

The Rose City Park playground serves a number of communities, including Rose City Park, Madison South and the Hollywood District. The playground was first designed and constructed in the mid to late 1950's and not a whole lot has changed since those days. The park is in need of some serious upgrades to improve accessibility, safety, and design.

Our vision for revitalizing the playground stems from our desire to build a strong community that works together to make our neighborhoods safe and accessible to everyone. We live in a diverse and growing neighborhood, with lots of families and children who enjoy the park on a daily basis. We want our park to reflect the beauty and inclusiveness of our community.

Any contribution you make will go straight into the project. Portland Parks & Recreation is supportive of our efforts to raises funds for the play area, but we will need to raise a substantial amount as a community to get this project going. 

Our initial goal is $100,000 to kick-off our project. Please consider giving today!
