Thank You – No Ivy Day Volunteers

Saturday October 27th, Friends of Pier Park hosted a volunteer opportunity in support of Portland Parks and Recreation’s No Ivy Day. Thank you for all of those who came out and volunteered to help beautify the park. Volunteers participated in several different activities including ivy removal, planting, spreading gravel, rebuilding stairs, and picking up limbs. Volunteers and community members also had access to coffee and treats provided by both Starbucks and Heavenly Donuts. When the event was over, Friends of Pier Park also provided a free lunch that consisted of hot dogs and chips.

Friends of Pier Park along with various community members are grateful for all the hard work these volunteers. It is through the efforts of volunteers that the park can maintain it’s presence in the community. Thank you again to all of our volunteers! We look forward to more events in the future.
