Friends of Pier Park
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.
Our next meeting is Wednesday, February 19th at 6:30 pm at the St. Johns Community Center. This is an important meeting as it is the board election. All are welcome.
Our accomplishments include convincing City Hall to keep Pier Pool open, 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.
