Places in Goose Hollow
Providence Park [formerly Jeld-Wen Field/PGE Park/Civic Stadium/Multnomah Stadium] is a multi-purpose sports facility located on the north edge of Goose Hollow and is home to Major League Soccer's Portland Timbers, beginning its inaugural season in 2011, and the Thorns, winner of the 2013 NWSL Championships in their inaugural season. The stadium was originally built in 1926 on the grounds of Multnomah Field and has undergone a number of transformations over the years including a current renovation for the MLS expansion. Not only is the stadium home to the Timbers and Thorns (as well as the AAA Beavers prior to its recent renovation), but a number of other teams and events call Providence Park home. Portland State University plays its home football games at Providence Park. The Portland State women’s soccer program also plays a number of games at the stadium. Goose Hollow has a Good Neighbor Agreement with the stadium that limits noise and other nuisances. Portland has a separate 2010 Good Neighbor Agreement with the stadium that requires Park personnel to pick up event-related litter and debris within 24 hours of all Timbers games in the area bounded by Jefferson/Vista/I-405/Flanders. Parking information for the stadium can be found here.
