2012 Calendar Mt Tabor Park
13 images Created 2 Feb 2012
Celebration of Mount Tabor Park, one of the oldest urban parks in the United States. Located on an extinct volcanic cinder cone, and designed in 1909 by Emanuel T. Mische and John Charles Olmsted, this urban park incorporated working open water reservoirs, a vital link to bringing fresh, high-quality drinking water from Bull Run to the Portland area. These reservoirs have been condemned by new EPA regulations, and plans are already in progress for their elimination from the water distribution system. Standard format - 8.5" x 11" (217mm x 280mm) - full color. All photos © Andrew Haliburton.
