About FoWP

Friends of Wilshire Park (FoWP) was formed in 2018 by neighbors in Northeast Portland and evolved to become a standing committee of the Beaumont-Wilshire Neighborhood Association (BWNA). Our mission is to work with Portland Parks and Recreation, local neighborhood associations, and our neighbors to improve and enhance Wilshire Park and to act as a forum for park issues.

The committee has successfully raised money to create the NatureScape, improve the children’s play area and  bring a water fountain to the dog park.  The committee has also worked with Portland Parks and Recreation to replace the old drinking fountain with a more accessible fountain and to replace the chin up bars.

If you wish to become a Friend of the Park or have a question for us, send an email to friendsofwilshirepark@gmail.com
