There is a new outdoor public gathering space in Tigard.
Universal PlazaHailed as a “space for everyone” in downtown Tigard that “celebrates our common humanity and our common planet,” it was revealed to the public on Saturday morning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, music, food carts, vendors, and other amenities welcoming the hundreds who came to see the new space.
