Volunteer with Friends of Congress Square Park!

Volunteers just like you are the heart of the park. People of all ages come together to make the park festive, welcoming, and well-maintained. We invite you to bring your enthusiasm and skills, volunteering with us on projects, or throughout the season. We can find an opportunity that meets your interests and schedule, including:

  • Gardening & watering plants
  • Opening & closing the park
  • Representing us at fun events
  • Promoting events & activities
  • Serving on a project team
  • Using your professional skills to support the park (photography, design, placemaking…)

Sign up to volunteer today by completing the form below or sending an email to our Executive Director, Dela Murphy at dela (at)

    Please let us know the types of volunteering you are interested in. We will contact you to discuss details. Select all that apply.

An urban oasis for you, your family, and Portland.

Our amazing neighborhood volunteers make it all possible. YOU can help too! Sign up to volunteer today!
