Friends of Irving Park

By Ryan Gallagher

Did you know Irving Park is one of Portland’s oldest parks without a community-led Friends group?

That will soon to be changing, as motivated neighbors across the Irvington, Sabin, King, and Eliot neighborhoods come together to officially establish Friends of Irving Park.

Friends of Irving Park intends to be a beacon for greater community engagement, ensuring the park remains a safe and inviting green space for all of the area’s diverse people and needs. By rallying public support and mobilizing volunteers, the group aims to focus on a range of livability challenges facing the park—including solutions for addressing the growing off-leash dog issue.

A series of community gatherings are currently being planned for later this spring, inviting those interested in learning more to come join the conversation, share their feedback, and find out how to participate. Look for future announcements, volunteering opportunities, and events at FriendsofIrvingPark.org or by following their Facebook page. Questions or comments can be sent to hello@friendsofirvingpark.org.
