r has become an annual event and one that gets looked at and pondered upon every calendar day. It’s a continuing project by photographer Andrew Haliburton and celebrates this beloved park, refuge and its historic structures.
Though the reservoirs are no longer used as reservoirs, for more than a hundred years, they functioned at the heart of Portland’s drinking water supply, balancing the flow of drinking water from Bull Run until they were disconnected from the City’s drinking water system in 2016.
The park covers 190 acres, and offers many recreational amenities including paved and unpaved trails, play areas, basketball court, tennis courts and picnic areas.
The calendar features twenty-five photos of vistas and details in and around the park and it is printed and bound locally. It features dates of no-change guided tree identification walks, volunteer Weed Warrior meets for clean-ups, the summer concerts and FMTP Winter Program meetings.
Calendars may be purchased for $20 at the Visitor Information kiosk in Mount Tabor Park or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 503.319.8946. A percentage of sales is donated to the Friends of Mt. Tabor Park. See andrewhaliburton.com for more.
