About

Portal Park is located on a highly visible corner on 18 E. Arcadia Ave. where the goal is to create learning gardens and food bearing trees and food bearing plants free to the public. There are many surrounding schools, urban children, as well as large amounts of the public traversing the park on their way to and from shopping, work and transit stations. Your participation is a unique opportunity for all to get their hands dirty and enjoy the fruits of their labor. The Friends of Portal Park hope to create a multigenerational green space that can be used for neighborhood events and ongoing gardening education. Adopting the park from the City of Columbus and continuing the restoration work started in 2005, we seek to make the park a serene buffer from traffic as well as a bridge to the separate communities that share it. Building community and cohesiveness among them would go a long way towards relieving equity issues in the area i.e. making a reflective public green space available to those least able to find it. Targeting seniors, families, singles and children, educational outreach in the form of classes taught by volunteers and master gardeners would cover a wide range of topics (soil amending, pruning, various cultivation techniques, container gardening; the use of native Ohio plants in landscapes.) Friends of Portal Park believe gardening across generations can affect the community as a whole. It’s a vehicle for creating trust. It’s a demonstration of sustainable vitality within the urban core.

Volunteers can sign up for 2 hour shifts over the course of the week 04/08-04/15. We will be working on gardening, weed whacking, pruning and overall beautifying the park.
