PORTLAND — On Thursday, the city will host its fourth annual "Green Space Gathering" – an effort aimed at introducing residents to city parks and educating them about upcoming projects, the city said in a press release.

City staff will talk about last year's achievements, as well as highlights for the upcoming year.

This year's projects include the restoration of Fort Allen Park and replacing the lights at Fitzpatrick Stadium, the city said.

Last year's projects included the Eastern Cemetery Master Plan, a citywide tree inventory, Taylor Street Park and Playground upgrades, and the installation of fitness stations at several schools and on the Back Cove Trail.

Thursday's gathering will take place from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Ocean Avenue Elementary School.

A keynote address will be delivered by Eliza Townsend, a former state legislator, Maine League of Conservation Voters executive director and Maine Department of Conservation commissioner.
