I am trying to find a list of all Portland parks, ordered/sorted or not.
I can of course find this information on the city website or on Wikipedia, but not in a format I can easily copy.
Just trying to build a checklist / date log and it would be super if I could find a list of all park names without having to copy/paste a ton.
Edit: Thanks for assisting. In case someone else ever wants this, I am including a list here. Note that I may have missed some as copying on mobile was sketchy.

The first part of this booking was largely done by u/john14325
but I have edited some of the descriptions and made a few edits. Check out his booking of the Main Event Mafia: https://www.reddit.com/fantasybooking/comments/g6pbps/rebook_tna_the_main_event_mafia/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
where a lot of this booking comes from. Build to Bound for Glory 2008:
After losing to Samoa Joe the year before, Angle fought his way to another title shot at Lockdown, where he put his career on the line against Kaz. In a shocking turn of events, Angle turned heel to become king of the mountain. Lambasting those who did not approve of his change in attitude, Angle still referred to himself as a man of integrity unlike TNA's founder. Seeing himself as the most important man in company history, Angle kept insulting Jarrett. This led to No Surrender where Double J returned, costing Angle the World Title against Joe.
Owning up to his own reign of terror, Jarrett went on a apology tour, asking for forgiveness of his abuse of powers years prior. Seeing Angle going down a similar past due to him being the highest paid person in TNA history, Jarrett set out to stop Angle from gaining more power. With the rivalry growing personal at an alarming rate, Foley was brought in to maintain order. Mick Foley made his TNA debut and said he was hired by Jeff Jarrett to become the new Commissioner of TNA, the role he always excelled in, because Jarrett believes Mick is the perfect man to run the company and keep things in order in case Angle causes any chaos. Mick tries to bring Angle to the light but he eats an Angle Slam. Mick makes himself the special guest referee, to ensure a fair match and fair result. Bound for Glory 2008: Jeff Jarrett def. Kurt Angle w/Mick Foley as special guest referee
That Foley did, as he stopped Angle from braining an already bloodied Jarrett with a guitar before getting into a skirmish himself. Seizing the advantage, Jarrett used the guitar himself to steal the victory over a clearly superior opponent. Build to Turning Point 2008:
With the formation of the villainous stable, The Main Event Mafia, all eyes are on Commissioner Foley to see what announcement he makes. He says he met up with A.J. Styles and Samoa Joe, and they personally went around the TNA locker room and assembled a roster of people to fight for TNA against The Mafia. Styles, Joe, Petey Williams and The Motor City Machine Guns all come out and say they are the TNA Front Line, they will fight for justice, and they will fight off the old timers stealing their air time and championships.
The week following, the newly formed TNA Front Line come out and get into a huge brawl with The Main Event Mafia. People are thrown into the apron, ring posts, theres fists flying everywhere, no one can be contained. Scott Steiner gets into a fight with Petey Williams, his ex protege. Williams fights for TNA, Steiner isn’t part of him anymore. Petey slaps Steiner, which causes Steiner to brutally assault him some more.
Mick Foley says that Turning Point will be the war to settle the score. He will book a series of Front Line vs. Mafia matches, to see who is the better stable. Petey Williams and his former mentor Scott Steiner will do battle for Steiner’s Legends Championship. Petey will not defend his X Division, so there will be an Ultimate X Match to find the #1 Contenders to the X Division Championship. Booker T will take on Christian Cage in a Loser Leaves Town Match, Samoa Joe will get revenge on his former friend Kevin Nash, and A.J. Styles will challenge champion, Sting, for the TNA World Championship in the main event. The battle lines have been drawn. Turning Point 2008: Kurt Angle def. Jay Lethal vs Consequences Creed vs Eric Young vs Homicide vs Sonjay Dutt in a Ultimate X match
This match opens the show and it’s a 20 minute spot fest, people flying everywhere and high risks moves aplenty. Mike Tenay says this match embodies what the X Division is all about. Most notable participant in the match is Kurt Angle, as he stays as far out of the match as he can, only climbing the cables when everyone’s down and eventually he goes on to win the match. Booker T def. Christian Cage
Booker T manages to defeat Christian clean since Christian was leaving for WWE anyway. Booker attacks Cage after the match, getting some heat for The Mafia as he batters a fan favourite in the last time they will see him again. Scott Steiner(c) def Petey Williams to retain the Legends Championship
As Petey Williams is making his entrance, he is attacked from behind by Kurt Angle and leaves him as easy pickings for Scott Steiner but Petey puts up a hell of a fight. The one thing he cannot pull off is a Canadian Destroyer on Scott Steiner, he tries as hard as he can but the attack from early kicks in, plus Steiner is near impossible to lift up. Finally he’s put away by the Frankensteiner from Scott, who retains his Legends Championship Kevin Nash def. Samoa Joe
Samoa Joe and Kevin Nash have a hell of a brawl, not doing much wrestling to hide Nash’s inability, just having a good old fashioned fight. They go around 10 minutes and Nash wins after hitting a low blow and three jackknife power bombs onto Samoa Joe. This makes Joe look strong in defeat, only being put away after three almighty finishers. Sting(c) def. AJ Styles to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
AJ Styles - the man who hasn’t held World Championship gold in three years wants to make an impact and silence Sting for good. AJ embodies TNA, he started out as the face of the X Division, something that is very close to TNA. He was a multiple time NWA Champion, he knows what holding World Championship gold feels like. They have a tremendous 25 minute match, Sting is able to pull off the clean victory and Styles offers his hand in a show of respect but is jumped by the rest of Main Event Mafia. The show ends with a beat down, mega heat for The Mafia. Build to Final Resolution 2008:
The Main Event Mafia kicked ass at Turning Point, proving an old dog can still learn new tricks and they showed they were dominate over The Front Line. We see a pre taped party The Mafia are throwing in Sting’s multi-million dollar mansion. Champagne bottles are popped, Scott Steiner is with his freaks, Kurt Angle has milk in a wine glass and they are loving life. “Damn it feels good to be on top” Sting says to close it off.
That same night AJ Styles, Petey Williams, Samoa Joe and The Motor City Machine Guns come out and they’re pissed that they work their asses off every night to make TNA the best wrestling company in the world while the so called stars are partying and here just to collect a paycheck. They challenge Main Event Mafia to a five on five elimination match at Final Resolution and the winners will hold all the gold, every championship in TNA. Main Event Mafia accept the match and promise that after Final Resolution that the Front Line will learn to respect the veterans.
And of course, just because it’s the best heat in the world, The Mafia batter Mick Foley on the go home show. Final Resolution 2008 Main Event Mafia(c) def. TNA Front Line(c) in a Five on Five Elimination Winner Takes All Match to hold all the gold
The match is action packed and never slows downs. Everyone put in a great effort before we get down to AJ Styles vs Sting and Kurt Angle. AJ fights valiantly, giving it everything he’s got. Buy the numbers game is too much for him and Sting pins Styles once again. Now, The Main Event Mafia holds all the gold. Sting has the World Heavyweight Championship, Kurt Angle has the X-Division Championship, Scott Steiner has the Legends Championship, and Kevin Nash and Booker T have the World Tag Team Titles. What does this mean for the future of TNA? When will the reign of terror end? Or will it ever? Build to Genesis 2009
Main Event Mafia celebrate their big win at Final Resolution by taking over an episode of Impact!. Sting beats up Mick Foley with the baseball bat before the show and takes his spot as commissioner for the episode. We have that really entertaining episode where Kevin Nash and Booker T are on commentary for the whole show, and Scott Steiner is the ring announcer. Sting all the while makes matches where the Mafia beat up the younger lower midcarders of TNA, just being total dicks.
Samoa Joe goes up to Mick Foley next week and demands the rematch he never got for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. Foley responds thst he’d love to but they have all the leverage right now and there’s nothing Mick can do. So, Joe launches a revenge campaign against Main Event Mafia and attacks them during their matches. Scott Steiner challenges “that fat out of shape wannabe Samoan” to a match at Genesis and Joe agrees, but not for the title because the only title that matter to him is the World Heavyweight Championship.
Mick once again announces matches for Genesis. Petey Williams will invoke his rematch against Kurt Angle for Genesis, while Motor City Machine Guns will challenge Kevin Nash and Booker T for the TNA World Tag Team Championships.
Jeff Jarrett steps up, having been gone for a few months while The Front Line and Mafia’s war took place. Jarrett says he created TNA as a platform for young guys to get an opportunity that they wouldn’t get anywhere else. TNA is not a place for old timers to coast of their reputation to collect a paycheck. Jarrett says Foley might not be able to step up, but he sure as hell can. He challenges Sting to the World Heavyweight Championship, since Jarrett still has a stake in TNA, he’s able to pull some strings and enlist Mick Foley as the special guest referee stacking the odds against Sting for once. Genesis 2009 Kurt Angle(c) def Petey Williams to retain the X-Division Championship
We have a great opening match where Petey Williams looks great and comes so close to beating Kurt Angle after hitting a Canadian Destroyer but ultimately he succumbs to the Ankle Lock and has no choice but to tap out. Samoa Joe def. Scott Steiner

Nash and Booker retain the titles in dominant fashion. Jeff Jarrett vs Sting(c) /w Mick Foley as the special guest referee for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
We get to the match we’ve all been waiting for. The two are having a good match, everything is going fair, Mick is doing well enforcing the match, when all of a sudden The Main Event Mafia attack Jarrett but instead of calling for the bell, Foley chases them off with Jarrett’s guitar. Jarrett gets up and asks for the guitar, but Foley looks at it for a moment and whacks Jarrett with it allowing Sting to win the match. SWERVE! Mick Foley turns on TNA. As if The Main Event Mafia couldn’t get more powerful, they now have the damn commissioner on their side. TNA is their show now. Build to Against All Odds 2009:
Mick Foley joins The Main Event Mafia. Huge news, and the big angle heading into Impact! is “Mick Foley explains his actions”. Mick says ever since he’s came to TNA, he has sympathised with the Front Line big. He formed the group. But he realised why would he be on the losing side? He’s Mick god damn Foley. He doesn’t need to hang out with a bunch of losers who will never be as good as the legends. He is a legend himself, so he decided he’d become one of the boys, and embrace it. Mick runs the show, thanks to Jeff Jarrett, so as long as he’s in charge, The Mafia will rule the roost.
Jay Lethal and Consequences Creed both step up to challenge Kurt Angle for the X-Division Championship making everyone think that Angle will lose because Creed and Lethal are tag team partners and they say it doesn’t matter which one of them wins as long as Kurt Angle loses.
Jarrett is infuriated about Mick Foley. He wants to destroy Mick Foley, and take TNA back. He doesn’t have full control like Foley does, but he still has some. So he books himself into a Hardcore Match with Foley for Against All Odds. He tries to make it if Foley loses he has to step down, but he doesn’t have the power to do so and Foley isn’t willing to accept that challenge. Jarrett promises nonetheless he will bloody and batter Mick Foley.
Scott Steiner is walking backstage when he finds his ex protege Petey Williams. Scott says he put in a hell of a showing against Kurt Angle and offers him a spot in Main Event Mafia, but Williams calls Steiner a traitor. He abandoned the people who shared the locker room with him, he abandoned TNA. All for what? To dick around with a bunch of old dudes. Petey spits on his boots and a backstage brawl breaks out, because Steiner feels he’s being disrespected. This sets up a match for the Legends title at Against All Odds.
Samoa Joe is still on his revenge tour and this time he targets Booker T. They have a match at Against All Odds.
Rhino is offered a spot in Main Event Mafia but Rhino turns it down as he says after ECW closed, TNA was the only company who took a chance on him and he won’t betray them by joining the likes of Main Event Mafia, which prompts Sting to attack Rhino with a bat setting up a match at Against All Odds. Against All Odds 2009 Kurt Angle(c) def. Consequences Creed vs Jay Lethal to retain the X Division Championship
Most of the match consists of Creed and Lethal ganging up on Kurt Angle but when Creed goes for the pin, Lethal breaks it up and they both realise they want to be the champion, and they start fighting. The fight ends with Lethal hitting the Lethal Injection on Creed but as he goes to pin him, Kurt Angle throws Lethal out of the ring and pins Creed to retain the title. The sneaky bastard. Samoa Joe def. Booker T /w Kevin Nash
Samoa Joe wins the match and afterwards is laid out by Kevin Nash.
** Mick Foley def. Jeff Jarrett in a Hardcore match**
We see a more aggressive and a more sinister side of Mick Foley which we haven’t quite seen yet in TNA, he’s pulling on his hair, he’s screaming at Jarrett, and he practically murders the poor man. He busts him open with several rights and lefts, making him bleed and scream. Foley wallops him with a steel chair, pushes him off a ladder through a table, and at one point hits an Alabama Slam onto a pile of thumbtacks. Foley makes Jarrett pass out to the Mandible Claw to win the match. Jarrett is demolished. Scott Steiner(c) def. Petey Williams to retain the Legends Championship
During the build to this match, Steiner targeted Williams knee and it shows in the match because Williams can’t execute most of his high flying offence. He finally he gains the upper hand late in the match and is about to hit the Canadian Destroyer but his knee gives out and Steiner capitalises, nailing a Steiner Screwdriver to win the match and retaining the title. Sting def. Rhino to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
Sting wins the match retaining the title after Kevin Nash interferes and they beat down Rhino until Team 3-D come out to even the odds. Build to Destination X 2009
Samoa Joe wants a match against Kevin Nash at Destination X and if Joe wins he gets a shot at Sting’s World Heavyweight Title. Nash says I’ve beaten you before and I’ll beat you again.
Kurt Angle is forced to defend his title against five men in an Ultimate X Match by Jeff Jarrett using the creative control he has. Those men are: Consequences Creed, Jay Lethal, Eric Young, Suicide and Sonjay Dutt.
Petey Williams wants one more shot at Steiner’s Legends Championship but to make that happen, he has to go through Booker T at Destination X in order to get his shot.
Mick Foley is called out by A.J. Styles as a TNA traitor. AJ says he should have never trusted Mick and that he should have never been signed in the first place. He has no reason to be here other than to collect a paycheck like everyone else in The Mafia. He challenges Mick to an Xtreme Match (weapons based X Division match) at Destination X, which Mick accepts, before attacking him with the Mandible Claw. He tries to do again a few weeks later but he fails.

The Main Event Mafia will consist of Kevin Nash, Booker T, Kurt Angle and Mick Foley. Sting makes a point of excluding Steiner from the match and Steiner loses his temper which causes him to get attacked by Main Event Mafia meaning Steiner is officially out of the group.
During the build, Petey Williams loses the Legends Championship to Mick Foley. Foley is now on a violent streak, trying to take Petey out of the match. We head into the event unknown if Petey will make it back in time for the Lethal Lockdown Match.

Booker T and Kevin Nash face off in a match to blow off some steam and the match goes to a double count out while they’re brawling outside the ring. Kurt Angle comes out to separate them and tells them “what’s wrong with you both? We need to be united and show these punks in the back who the stars are.” This is able to defuse the tension between Kevin Nash and Booker T.
Abyss wants to wreak havoc on the faction that wants to destroy a company he’s been apart of since it’s inception and challenges Mick Foley to a monsters ball match for the Legends Championship. Mick gladly accepts and tells Abyss he’s been doing the crazy shit Abyss does since before Abyss even stepped foot in a ring.

They challenge that traitor Scott Steiner and Petey Williams for the TNA World Tag Team Championships. Kurt Angle explains that Sting was weak and The Main Event Mafia was falling apart with him at the helm, so with Kurt Angle as the new Godfather of The Main Event Mafia they will reclaim their former glory. Sting wants revenge against Kurt Angle but in order to do so he has to beat Team 3-D in a handicap match tonight on Impact!.
We get to the match and Team 3-D have the match won when Samoa Joe’s music hits distracting Team 3-D allowing Sting to roll up Brother Ray to win the match. Samoa Joe uses a steel chair to clear out Team 3-D and he teases using the chair on Sting, but instead he shakes Sting’s hand and at Victory Road it will be Kurt Angle vs Sting vs Samoa Joe for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
We have a six man Ultimate X match to determine the #1 contender for the X-Division Championship but the sixth man doesn’t enter until towards the end of the match.

The Main Event Mafia once again hold all the gold and Kurt Angle brags that he beat Samoa Joe clean as a damn whistle, something that Sting could never do and because of that he doesn’t have the need to face Sting because Angle has already proven he’s better than him. Jim Cornette, a new authority figure in TNA, says “not so fast Angle, you will face Sting for the TNA World Heavyweight Title at Hard Justice and everyone is banned from ringside to ensure a fair match and if you’re disqualified or counted out you lose the title.” Kurt is very annoyed.
Petey Williams and Scott Steiner invoke their rematch clause against Team 3-D and this time it will be a tables match.
Booker T will face abyss in a Last Man Standing Match for the TNA Legends Championship. Mick Foley is still annoyed at Booker T, and with how crazy Mick is, Booker is terrified about Foley going into the event. Mick says he’ll be in Booker’s corner the whole time, watching...
Oddly enough, AJ Styles doesn’t appear on Impact and doesn’t invoke his rematch clause for the X-Division Championship instead we see him have private meetings with Jim Cornette and no one knows why, so Kevin Nash further disrespects the X-Division and takes the night off at Hard Justice.
