SOLV-IT cleanup day was today and several volunteers turned out to clean up the Pier Park Skatepark. Folks picked up trash and worked on graffiti removal and coverup. It was four and a half hours of hard work coordinated by The Friends of Pier Park and supported by Portland Parks and Recreation. Thanks for your hard work everyone. The park looks great. It’s nice to be able to ride without the distraction of really dumb graffiti.
