DIRECTIONS TO SITE
Meet at: Kingsley D. Bundy Park. Important to read: Park is located on SE 141st Avenue, south of SE Foster Road. SE 141st Avenue is a dirt road. There is no parking lot or space for cars at the Park entrance. So, we ask that you park either directly alongside Foster Road (approximate link to area: 45°28’37.3″N 122°31’03.1″W – Google Maps) or on SE 142nd Avenue, south of Foster Road. Please be sure to not block neighbors’ driveways. Then, walk ¼ mile down SE 141st Avenue (heading south) to the Park meeting site. Look for signs, which will be put up ½ hour before the event. We will put up a “Volunteer Parking” sign alongside SE Foster Road and a “Volunteer Event” sign that will point you down SE 141st Avenue to the Park, so that you know which direction to walk.
