Portland, Oregon has been a growing city for years with many young people relocating here to start a career. These people have gone on to marry and have children and the city has continued to evolve to accommodate the needs of families. With this growth Portland has truly become a fantastic destination for families.
Portland, Oregon was already home to one of the best zoos and best science museums in the nation, but now it is home to so many more things to do with kids.
Part of the planning for Portland's city parks has been making sure they are kid friendly and fun. That is way Portland has so many unique parks for kids like Director Park, a park with a fountain for the kids to play in, and a place like Blue Lake park where kids can play in a spray pad, swim in a lake, or play on one of the playgrounds there.
Just like the city parks many of Portland's community centers have been updated and remodeled. We have included the Mt. Scott Community Center, because it has been updated and has an awesome indoor pool now. For those that can not get enough swim time in on a vacation we have also included the North Clackamas Aquatic Center which is a massive indoor pool facility.
No matter what activity your kids like to do Portland is sure to not only offer that activity, but likely to have multiple places that offer that activity to choose from.
