Come help Depave and partners launch the transformation of an over-paved park in a residential neighborhood in Oregon City by ripping up around 4000 square feet of asphalt. Once Oregon City’s first municipal swimming pool, the park is now paved over and the focus of a local reinvestment effort.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome! We typically have activities for young stewards to be involved in depaving, but parents are responsible for attending to their children. Unaccompanied minors, please email us in advance about a parent/guardian’s signature.

Depave will provide all the necessary tools, gloves, safety gear, and our partners will provide coffee, breakfast snacks, and lunch.

We’ll be starting at 10am and working until about 2pm. Volunteers are encouraged to come early – orientation is at 9:45. However, all are welcome to come at any time during the day and stay for as long/short as desired.

Due to the physical nature of the work planned, volunteers are encouraged to wear clothing appropriate for tough work. Closed-toed shoes and long pants are required to depave – NO EXCEPTIONS.

Address: 902 11th Street, Oregon City 97045
