This expansive park stretches from W. Burnside to NW Glisan between NW 8th Avenue and NW Park Avenue. Park visitors enjoy the shady tree canopy and grassy areas, outdoor basketball court, children’s play area, a special dog bowl fountain by famous Weimaraner dog photographer William Wegman and a 12-foot bronze sculpture titled Da Tung (Universal Peace), a replica of a Chinese antique dating from the late Shang Dynasty (1200-1100 BC).

The North Park Blocks are host to many public and private festivals, including the Northwest Beer Fest and the Annual Art in the Pearl Festival.
