Portland Parks & Recreation offers a variety of fun and rewarding volunteer opportunities at sites across the city! Annually, Portlanders volunteer over 450,000 hours with us to help make our parks great! Volunteer coaches, teacher aides, and mentors are always needed in our youth programs - and the parks, gardens, and natural areas welcome extra hands. 

Ongoing and one-day projects are available and no experience is necessary!
Contact Steve Pixley at for more information. 

During the 2016 and 2017 fiscal year, dedicated PP&R volunteers contributed 473,675 hours of service. This is a value of  $5,721,804 invested back into our parks, community centers, and programs. Read more.
