There is a new public meeting space outside in Tigard.
Universal Plaza Hailed as a “space for all” in downtown Tigard that “celebrates our common humanity and our common planet,” it was unveiled to the public on Saturday morning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, music, food carts, vendors, and other welcoming amenities the hundreds came to see the new space.
The completion of the first phase of the plaza includes oversized porch swings to greet guests upon arrival, two lawns, a bike and pedestrian path and boardwalk overlooking Fanoo Creek, two food carts – Harvest Moon Experience and a West Coast Torta Company – sales and storage shelter and a four-cabin bathroom with a hand washing station.
The second phase of the public square, which will be built later, will add a canopy to provide shelter from the rain and sun, as well as a common area.
The arena will host community events, a Tigard farmer’s market, food trucks and more throughout the year.
