Park Blocks

I have always been aware of how much the Park blocks seem to be a part of PSU and the academic environments. Students seating down on the benches, or on the grass, eating, studying or just chatting seem to be as much part of the PSU campus experience as any building. I went to the planning and facilities building to find out more of who takes care of the park blocks. I spoke to someone there (forgot my sources name). She explained that, although the Park blocks belong to the city of Portland; its maintenance is the responsibility of both the city of Portland and the PSU landscaping crew. From dog poop to branches on the grown, the PSU crew takes care of it. if there is a more in depth need for maintenance, PSU will call the city of Portland to take care of it (sewage and draining issues, tree disease control).
