Your Support for Pier Park Makes a Big Difference!
Please donate today to keep our Pier Park programming vibrant and in motion in 2022. Your funds will go toward keeping children engaged in nature, families interested in coming to see what’s new, and attracting volunteers who can help share in maintaining the beauty, safety, and bio-diversity of Pier Park for all to enjoy. Won’t you join us?
2021 has been a big year of activity in the Park:
- Third-graders from Sitton Elementary helped us plant native understory as part of a Community Watershed Stewardship project that put in nearly 900 plants, trees, and shrubs to increase the Park’s bio-diversity
- We laid out and put in the start of a glorious Woodland Garden to brighten the entrance off of N. Reno!
But to continue with this level of park restoration and community engagement, we need some help from you!
With any of these Donation Levels, you’ll receive a Friends of Pier Park Thank You gift, while supplies last!
Thank you for your continued support. We couldn’t do it without you!

Friends of Pier Park members are dedicated to the enhancement and protection of Pier Park.
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 accomplishments include convincing City Hall to keep Pier Pool open, the annual Pier Park Pick-Up sponsored by SOLVE, working with Stumptown Disc Golf to improve the disc golf course, and purchasing playground equipment. Recently we advocated for Portland Parks to replace the restroom facility by speaking at City Hall, writing letters, and more. See the blog post, Pier Park Restrooms Need an Upgrade.
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.
