Legacies in the Making:
An Evening with Portland’s Recent and Current Parks Directors
From the Eastbank Esplanade to Jamison Square to Powell Butte Nature Park, Zari Santner shaped the most recent legacy of the city’s plazas and green spaces during her three-decade tenure at Portland Parks & Recreation. Appointed in 2011, current director Mike Abbaté is poised to build the next phase of Portland parks, but in much different times. Together, Santner and Abbaté will offer an insider's view of the history they inherited, the opportunities they’ve made and missed, and their hopes for the future of one of the country’s most respected parks systems.
This event is part of "Force of Nature: Portland’s Parks, Past, Present, and Future," a discussion series in celebration of The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden
