Thank you to all of the beautiful volunteers who showed up on a lovely Earth Day, April 23, 2022, to work in Pier Park.
This was the 16th Annual SOLVE Pier Park Pick-Up sponsored by Friends of Pier Park and Waterlink Web. Parks staff also turned out to haul away truckloads of limbs and invasive plants removed and pulled to the walkways by volunteers.
A special thank you to Friends of Frog Ferry whose group volunteered. Learn more about this innovative transportation plan on their website, FrogFerry.com.

In addition, a small group from Stumptown Disc Golf added new concrete tee pads to holes 3, 4, and 6 of the disc course.
The Pier Park Pick-Up was followed by a barbecue hosted by Friends of Pier Park.
