Installation Celebration!

Thanks to everyone who came out today and celebrated the new bench in Two Plum Park!

We did it!

It was a beautiful clear day and we couldn’t have asked for better weather.
Hot Cider was enjoyed by everyone and neighbors got a chance to meet and enjoy the Park!

The Bench installation in Two Plum Park is complete!  We had lovely weather over the weekend and I was able to snap this photo and enjoy sitting on the bench!

I’d like to thank each and every one of you who made this bench possible!  After such a long journey, it suddenly feels simple again; a place to sit, relax and enjoy Two Plum Park.

Portland weather in November tends to be rainy, but this deserves a celebration!

Sunday November 24th from 2-4pm we will toast the bench installation with hot cider in the park!  

Stop by, have a seat and discover Two Plum Park!

The ‘Sit-able City’

Read up and then come sit on the bench in Two Plum Park!

We are almost there!

The concrete pad has been poured and hopefully the bench will get installed this week!



Bench Nearing Installation

The bench for Two Plum Park is getting closer than ever to being installed!

Barrett Anderson at the Parks Department let us know today that:

“We have folks doing locates for underground utilities etc this week.  Then they hope to excavate and pour the concrete pad by the end of the week. Then … there is a waiting period of about a week while the concrete cures.  At that point the bench and plaque can be installed. ”

Thanks to Barrett for keeping us in the Loop!

There is rain in the forecast for tomorrow and we’ve had a few showers lately, so we’ll see how the weather treats us, but we are getting closer!

I’ll post again once the bench is installed and we’ve been able to set a date for the Installation Celebration!


We Did It!


to all the supporters of a Bench for Two Plum Park!

As of January 2013 we had raised $5,300 for the installation of a bench in Two Plum Park.

We are now in the process of submitting the paperwork to Portland Parks for bench installation.  The very earliest we could expect a new bench would be June.

We’ll keep you posted!



We’re almost there!

We’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the last bit of funds needed for a bench!
