PGE Park is a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose facility located in the heart of downtown Portland, Ore. Fresh off a sparkling, $38.5-million renovation in 2000-2001, PGE Park is home to the Triple-A Baseball Portland Beavers and professional soccer’s Portland Timbers, a member of the United Soccer Leagues First Division. The stadium was originally built in 1926 and has undergone a number of transformations over the years. The recent renovation — debuted to the public on April 30, 2001 when the Beavers entertained the Fresno Grizzlies in front of 18,616 fans — immediately put PGE Park on the map as one of the finest stadiums in both the Pacific Coast League and the USL.
Not only is the stadium home to the Beavers and Timbers, but a number of other teams and events call PGE Park home. Portland State University plays its home football schedule at PGE Park. The Portland State women’s soccer program also plays a number of games at the stadium. Additionally, PGE Park houses a number of high school football contests in the fall and serves as a valuable component of the Beavers’ and Timbers’ community outreach programs — offering a place to play and practice for kids and amateur leagues.
PGE Park is a city-owned facility and is operated by Shortstop, LLC. The concessionaire at PGE Park is Centerplate, LLC.
