Portland Public School Board Chair Gary Hollands and City Commissioner Dan Ryan have committed to replace the Grant Bowl's artificial turf field and have the popular field open for fall sports in 2024. Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) and Portland Public Schools (PPS) will work together to develop cost estimates, project roles, a funding plan, and detailed timelines. Both organizations share a commitment to Grant High School students and the greater community.
For this year’s Grant High School sports season, PP&R has worked with PPS to provide the needed sports fields across the parks system, and the two organizations will continue to work together to ensure all Grant High School athletic program needs are met.
Both organizations recognize the unfortunate disruption this closure has caused. PPS and PP&R are dedicated to working together to provide short- and long-term solutions for Grant High athletes and the community.
