hope you’ve had a good holiday season and are enjoying the NatureSpace
and new toddler play structure at Wilshire Park. Please come to our next
meeting on Wednesday, February 13 to see the plan we’ve been working on
for continuing to improve the children’s play area.
There are two chances to help our neighborhood parks next week. The first is at Irving Park, which is just down the road from Wilshire Park. A small planting project will be taking place there on Tuesday, January 22 from 9 am to noon. School is out that day, so if you need something do with the kids, come on out to the park. If you’d like to help, please contact Hillary Maurer at Hillary.Maurer@portlandoregon.gov and let her know you’re coming.
Our second opportunity is happening Friday, January 25 at 9:30 am at Wilshire Park. The recent windstorms have left quite a lot of broken branches laying around our park, and we’ll be helping park staff clean them up. If you would like to volunteer, just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you’ll be there. Dress for the weather and bring some good gardening gloves to protect your hands.
