What do you get when volunteer local engineers and one of Portland’s venerable neighborhoods join forces to transform an urban blight into a green community oasis? The innovative and creative Tabor Commons, with sustainable stormwater facilities that filter 500,000 gallons per year—almost enough to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

Tabor Commons is the subject of KPFF Consulting Engineers’ second Stormwater Cinema film short, “A Garden to Play In,” created by local filmmakers Jen Wechsler and Ian Probasco.

Join KPFF project manager Josh Lighthipe, Café au Play Executive Director Kristin Heying and SE Uplift Neighborhood Representative Paul Leistner for the inspiring story of this dynamic community spot that brings clean stormwater, coffee and families together.
