Volunteer in the Park

Join community members and neighbors to steward and restore Colman Park. We work in natural areas, urban forest, and historic developed parkland landscapes designed by the Olmsted brothers. Volunteers learn about native plants and park stewardship, help the environment, and make our community a better, more attractive, and safer place to live and play. Come meet your neighbors and spend time in a beautiful setting! 

Most volunteer events begin at 10am and wrap up at 1pm but stay for as little or as long as you’re able. 

Closed-toed shoes, long sleeves, and pants are recommended. Gloves, tools, water and light snacks provided.

Bus routes 14 and 27 serve Colman Park. Free parking is available in the parking lot located at 2077 Lake Washington Blvd S at the bottom of the park and free street parking is available at the top of the park along 31st Ave S .
