Portland is home of parks such as Laurelhurst Park, which have been painstakingly planned to provide a bit of nature in the middle of the city. What better place to inspire the words or pictures on the page? And in such a setting, artists can even bring their sketchbooks or canvases to depict what they see in front of them for others to enjoy. Plenty of others enjoy the parks in Portland because they’re safe and even friendly to man’s best friend! A full park is not only a place to enjoy nature in solitude but to connect with others.
