Parke Diem

Now in its 4th year, Parke Diem is a citywide work party in partnership with Portland Parks & Recreation. Typically taking place on the 2nd Friday and Saturday in October, Parke Diem is a way for the entire community to come together in service to get in and give back to Portland's parks.

In 2015, 850 Portlanders came out to 45 parks to give back by pulling ivy, renovating trails and sports facilities, and maintaining our bountiful community gardens.  Since 2013, Parke Diem volunteers have given over 10,000 hours in volunteer service.
