Grant Park is a neighborhood and park in the Northeast section of Portland, Oregon. The neighborhood is bordered by Alameda and Beaumont-Wilshire to the north, Rose City Park to the east, Hollywood District, Laurelhurst, and Sullivan's Gulch to the south, and Irvington to the west, and best known as the setting for Beverly Cleary's Klickitat Street series of books. Houses in the neighborhood generally date to the nineteen twenties, and are primarily of the Old Portland or Craftsman styles.

The [ park] , honoring President (and former Vancouver, Washington resident) Ulysses S. Grant, was acquired by the city in 1922. On October 13, 1995, the Beverly Cleary Sculpture Garden for Children was dedicated in the park. It includes life-sized renditions by sculptor Lee Hunt of three Cleary characters: Ramona "the Pest" Quimby, Henry Huggins, and Ribsy (Henry's dog).
