PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Sunnyside Piazza was created in 2000 and is one of City Repair's first intersection repair projects aimed at reclaiming underutilized space and invigorating neighborhood stewardship. Every year, the community comes together to reinvigorate this public gathering place by repainting a gigantic sunflower in the middle of the intersection. The Piazza has become a wonderful and well-loved part of the Sunnyside Neighborhood in SE Portland, and has blossomed into a community cooperative movement that has cultivated social connectedness and a sense of community that gains momentum every year.

 

This annual painting is a neighborhood and city wide effort, where community volunteers help with all aspects of the project! If you can volunteer your time beforehand, or during the event, please email us. Be sure to come out painting day and help sow the new seeds of this iconic sunflower! And always remember... Keep on the Sunnyside of Life!
