Thank you for visiting the website for the Grant Park Neighborhood Association (GPNA). Grant Park is one of Portland’s 95 geographically defined neighborhoods. Located in northeast Portland, Grant Park is bordered by Alameda and Beaumont-Wilshire to the north, Irvington to the west, Rose City Park to the east, and the Hollywood District, Sullivan’s Gulch, and Laurelhurst to the south.
The GPNA is a volunteer organization that serves as the liaison between Grant Park residents and businesses, and the city government. The city’s Office of Community and Civic Life coordinates the neighborhood associations, which are clustered together into coalitions. Grant Park is part of the coalition known as Central Northeast Neighbors.
Grant Park is a historic, tree-lined neighborhood with parks, a large and involved school community, and many kinds of residents: young adults, families, seniors, homeowners, and renters. Grant Park also has a thriving business community that provides a wide variety of services for Grant Park residents and beyond. Grant Park Neighborhood Association (GPNA) values our inclusive community and encourages everyone to join us. All meetings are open to the public, and membership is free.
While we believe our neighborhood is wonderful, we also know that there is always room for improvement. Further, we acknowledge the larger picture of Portland’s history of racism and discrimination, and no part of Portland is free of this shameful history. Even today, our neighborhood bears the marks of Portland’s history of redlining, gentrification, and systemic racism. We stand against racism, discrimination, and marginalization of any kind, and we embrace the inherent value in the contributions of different cultures, perspectives, and lived experiences. Our neighborhood becomes a better place when all residents and visitors feel welcomed, safe, and included.
