One of the best parts of downtown Portland! It's easily accessible and even though it's so popular, you really don't have to deal with a ton of people in the middle of the day.

A neat place in downtown, Portland to spend time cool. Daily events, with very good connectivity of buses and street cars, it's a nice place. The seating with red bricks without any damage at any place is quite amazing. The smooth ramp will take you to all levels but you don't notice it you are ignoring one beautiful aspect. Flicks on bricks.... Tag line to this place.
