Pier Pool Opens for Summer June 20th
Pier Pool is a popular outdoor recreation spot for St. Johns. This summer, join the fun June 20th – August 25th.
Friends of Pier Park members are dedicated to the enhancement and protection of Pier Park. As a non-profit group, we advocate for this beautiful park, its public pool, skatepark, tennis courts, ball fields, disc golf course and amazing trees. We also organize volunteer work parties in cooperation with Portland Parks and Recreation to remove invasive plants and graffiti, plant native trees and shrubs and improve the trails and disc course.
We meet every month (except December) on the 3rd Monday at 6:30 pm at the St. Johns Community Center. All are welcome. In January and February, when the third Monday is a holiday, we meet on the 3rd Tuesday. Check our Events Calendar for updates.
Our accomplishments include convincing City Hall to keep Pier Pool open, the annual Pier Park Pick-Up sponsored by SOLVE, working with local companies, such as Next Adventure, to improve the disc golf course a Pier Park and purchasing playground equipment. We are proud to say that Pier Park is safer than any other Portland park of comparable size. The hundreds of regular disc golf players who play the course that winds around and through Pier Park keep it that way.
