In 2014, the square was home to a food car pod called "Grubbin'". The pod emerged from plans by Portland Parks & Recreation (PPR) to revitalize the square. In 2016, Amanda Waldroupe of Street Roots said the park, "for decades, has had a seedy reputation and attracted drug use, loitering and vandalism, as it fell into neglect and disrepair". PPR also announced plans to start accepting business proposals, and proposals for community projects.
