Cleanup at Chapman and Lownsdale parks has begun!
Rain has gotten in the way of our previous attempts to hold volunteer events, but this Wednesday we were able to get in the parks and clear out the leaves that have accumulated since mid-November.
Dozens of volunteers joined Portland Parks & Recreation staff to clear leaves and other debris in the parks in preparation for reseeding.
Portland-based Sunmark Environmental Services sold the city 3 tons of soil additive at a reduced price to help restore the ground.
