The Friends of Pendleton
The first Thursday morning of the month a volunteer group, the Friends of Pendleton, gather at the Hydrangea Garden to weed, prune, fertilize and help maintain the grounds. These Volunteers work in all of the gardens and also assist with carpentry projects, facility painting, and other general maintenance needs. The Friends of Pendleton also help to organize various park events and schedule volunteer work days within the community.
Volunteers are an integral part of the success of PKP. Volunteers have developed, financed and planted the hydrangeas in the Hydrangea Garden, they maintain the Camellia Garden, the Azalea Walk, the Touch and Smell Sensory Garden and Pendleton’s Blue Garden. They are the reason we have an improved disc golf course, children’s sculpture and music garden, information kiosk and a dog park. They weed, plant, prune, design and build. They organize events for the park such as the annual Plant Swap, Hydrangea Sale, Arbor Day and Bark Park events. They help with 5K runs and disc golf tournaments. They also raise funds for the park. They are the reason for the recent revitalization of this beautiful 64 acre park.
We invite you to join us and become a Friend of PKP. We work in the gardens on the first Thursday of the month, and we have many volunteer opportunities at other times of the year.
