Can I barbecue in a park?
If there is not high fire danger, grilling is allowed in Portland's parks. However, there are no grills installed in the parks so you must bring your own portable grill. Gas grills only -- no charcoal.

Please use common sense and take safety precautions when barbecuing. Remember to clean up the grounds and remove your trash from the park.
