Neighborhood: Pearl District/Old Town
Overview

This 105-acre portion of Forest Park is filled with a lush forest, a remarkable trail and stories of times past. Donald Macleay donated this parcel of land to Portland in 1882 when he was tired of paying the taxes for it. The only stipulation was that hospital patients must have access to the area in the warmer months. The original owner of this corner of Portland was hanged for killing his nemesis and daughter's father-in-law with a shotgun.
