Woodstock Park is a public park located in the Woodstock neighborhood of southeast Portland, Oregon, in the United States.[1] Operated by Portland Parks & Recreation, the park was acquired in 1921 and measures 14.11 acres (5.71 ha). SE 47th Avenue and SE 50th Avenue form the west and east boundaries; Woodstock Park is bounded by SE Steele Street to the north and by SE Harold Street and Woodstock School to the south.[2]

Amenities include a dog off-leash area, horseshoe pit, paved paths, picnic tables, a playground, public art, restroom facilities, soccer and softball fields and tennis courts.[1] The park is open between 5 a.m. and midnight daily.[1][3] The park has hosted high school softball games,[4] movies,[5] Woodstock School reunions,[6] and an annual event known as "Unimproved Road".[7] In 2012, Portland Parks & Recreation budget cuts threatened to close Woodstock Park's restroom facility and reduce daily care.[8]
