To celebrate our “brief but beautiful summer,” Willamette Week and Sticks & Stones Accessories will “re-purpose urban space into an inspiring burst of music and play that highlights why we tolerate nine months of rain.”

The second annual Pop-Up Pool Party is from 2 to 7 pm on July 30, at NW 23rd and Savier. It’s free if you RSVP through Facebook, but a $5 donation is encouraged.

According to Willamette Week, people who attend can “lounge, play lawn games, dance, or just soak in the sunlight.”

The event is supported by Red Bull Music Academy Radio, Whole Foods Market, popchips, Miller Lite, and Sparks.

Food will be provided by Gorilla Meats Co., Koi Fusion, and Fifty Licks Ice Cream, with drinks provided by Red Bull, Whole Foods Market, Miller Lite, and Sparks.

To top things off, fund-raising raffle prizes are being donated by Adidas, Sticks & Stones, Departure, Local35, Oddball Tattoo, Element Lounge, 220 Salon, Lizard Lounge, Reynolds Optical, Koi Fusion, Capital Brand, Bluehour, Voodoo Donuts, Gilt Club, East Lounge, Mr. Tattoo, West Hills Cosmetics Center, Voicebox, Compound Gallery, and Saucebox.

Not only will the party be fun, but the raffle will raise funds for Friends of Trees. Many thanks to Willamette Week, Sticks & Stones, and all of the party’s supporters!

Benefits/challenges to fencing the off-leash area at Couch Park

Comments Off on Benefits/challenges to fencing the off-leash area at Couch Park

Ms. Ali Ryan, Dog Off-Leash Program Coordinator for Portland Parks and Recreation, was our special guest at the June 2011 Safety and Livability meeting. After a discussion regarding the problems at the Couch Park off-leash dog area, Ms. Ryan offered to prepare an analysis of the benefits and challenges of fencing in that area. That analysis may be downloaded here: MemeCouchFencing_2011.pdf

The Safety and Livability Committee will continue to pursue options to make this park more accessible to the neighborhood. If you are interested in helping with outreach efforts to educate park visitors, please contact Mary Ann Pastene, mpastene@comcast.net.
