Last month Portland Parks & Recreation threw its annual Summer Celebration for kids at Montavilla Park on Northeast Glisan Street at 82nd Avenue. The event featured a special presentation of $175,000 by Karen Spencer, senior counsel for Nike Golf and Portland Parks Foundation. The donation came from Nike's signature community affairs program, NikeGO, for the Summer Playground Program and NikeGO cards for after-school and weekend activities for low-income children.

Other activities at this party in the park included: Nike soccer clinic and t-shirt giveaway, arts and crafts, games, Radio Disney entertainment, free popcorn and Popsicles, music, the Burgerville Train, and a free swim for everyone.

This is the 99th year of PP&R's Summer Playground Program, offering a wide variety of recreation activities to children ages 5-12. PP&R offers over 2,000 summer programs at locations around the city.
