- This park is named for the man who named Portland, Francis Pettygrove. Pettygrove, a developer from Portland, Maine won a famous coin toss that gave him the right to name a new city of Oregon after his hometown. Across from the park is Lovejoy Fountain, named for the gentleman who lost the coin toss. Pettygrove owned Portland's first wharf, warehouse, store and house. Stop by this metropolitan oasis to take in the grassy knolls and a bit of Portland's history. There are no fees to use the park.
