Shaded by a colonnade of elm and oak trees and adorned with flower beds, benches, paths, and public art, a park lays a six-block path of calm through the middle of the Cultural District, which runs north and south from Salmon to Market, and east to west from Broadway to 11th.

 

Cultural District is a Main Grid Room.

Description

 

New York City has Central Park and Washington, D.C. has the Mall, but Portland has the Park Blocks. Flanking these 12 blocks of green grass, statues, flower gardens and benches lie the cultural treasures of the city. The Cultural District is home to the largest collection of 20th century art in the Pacific Northwest in the Portland Art Museum, the vast collections detailing the state's rich past at the Oregon Historical Society, six theaters, and more historically significant architecture than almost anywhere else in the city.

Two parallel one-way streets between Salmon to Jackson streets, known jointly as Southwest Park Avenue, stretch along the length of Portland's downtown Cultural District. One block east of Park lies Broadway, and two of the three buildings that make up the Portland Center for the Performing Arts. The Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall is home to the Oregon Symphony and brings some of the greatest speakers, musical artists, and comedians to perform. Across Main Street on Broadway, the New Theatre Building grows upward from a circular entrance hall to a rotunda crowned with flashing rectangles of mirrored glass, and houses three performance arenas and a busy bar.
