PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A national organization has named Tom McCall Waterfront Park one of the 10 great public spaces for 2012.

The American Planning Association picked the downtown Portland park as part of its Great Places in America program.

Waterfront Park was highlighted for its design, features, history and high level of community support and use.

Pioneer Courthouse Square and Ladd's Addition were also honored as great places in Portland by the association.

The American Planning Association recognizes streets, neighborhoods and public spaces whose unique and authentic characteristics have evolved from thoughtful and deliberate planning by neighbors, community leaders and planners.
