Plans are in the works for Friends of Laurelhurst Park (FLP) 2022 work parties. Despite a few setbacks in 2021 (late seasonal start due to COVID-19 and scorching weather in August), much was accomplished.
Shrub beds and woodsy areas got spruced up with pruning, weeding out invasive plants and a whole lot of mulching.
Portland Parks and Recreation staff give FLP volunteers guidance and project support and are fun to work with.
Highlights of volunteering include meeting folks from around the city as well as working alongside new and longtime neighborhood residents. New faces are welcome to join the ever-changing group; come support this beautiful historic park.
Work Parties are held on the second Thursday of the month, 9 am-12 pm. Dates are April 14, May 12, June 9, July 14, Aug. 11, Sept. 8 and Oct. 13.
Cancellations or changes in the work party schedule will be posted on the park kiosk near the Parks building on Ankeny St.
Volunteers meet at the blue-green Parks building (3600 SE Ankeny St. on the park’s north side). Please bring work gloves and wear work shoes/clothes. All tools are supplied.
