Google street view from 2011 has the sign reading "SUMMERS": https://goo.gl/maps/gwhkfpoe6512

Photo posted in 2012 also reads "SUMMERS": File:Col._Summers_Community_Gardens,_Portland,_OR_2012.jpg">https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:…

And the city auditor has files dating back to 1925 with the name "SUMMERS": http://efiles.portlandoregon.gov/Record?…

Looks like IA is mistaken... but, I also have the vague recollection that it was called "SUMNERS." Strange indeed...
