PGE Park, home to the Portland Beavers minor league baseball team and the Portland Timbers soccer team. Next year the Timbers will be a major league team for the first time.
There has been a movement for years to bring a professional baseball team to Portland. It keeps getting shot down because the park is not big enough and it would make the downtown area too conjested. The other alternative is to build a new stadium but no one has figured out how to fund it.
In my line of work I deal with maintenance people not contractors but in this challenging economic climate I've starting to work with contractors too.
When you visit Portland consider taking in a game. Public transportation makes getting to the park easy from downtown restaurants and hotels.
Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
