PGE Park (formerly Civic Stadium; originally Multnomah Stadium) is a multi-purpose stadium located in Portland, Oregon, United States. It opened in 1926, and underwent a major renovation in 2001, with naming rights being bought by Portland General Electric (PGE).

Principal current tenants include the Portland Timbers, a USL First Division soccer team (and prior teams to bear that name), the Portland State University Vikings football team, as well as the Central Catholic High School Football team. The Portland Beavers minor-league baseball team of the Pacific Coast League played their final game at PGE park on September 6th, 2010 and are currently awaiting a new home (there have been three different teams to carry the Beaver name, all of which played in PGE Park).

In addition to its current and prior tenants, the stadium has hosted several other noteworthy events. PGE Park was the site of four group matches in the 1999 Women's World Cup and hosted two group matches, two quarterfinals, and both semifinals in the 2003 Women's World Cup. The stadium also hosted an exhibition match of Australian rules football in 1990.

On March 18, 2009, The Oregonian reported that a renovated PGE Park would be home to the 18th Major League Soccer team, which would replace the USL-1 Timbers and begin play for the 2011 season. An official news conference confirmed all of this on Friday, March 20. Due to MLS concerns about the playing surface, seating configuration, and scheduling, the renovations will force the Beavers to move to a new ballpark starting in 2011.
