WESTSIDE PARK PLANNING

For the past three months, Agora Planning has been reaching out to the Hood River community to find out your ideas for a possible new 20 acre park on the west side of Hood River, at the corner of Fairview and Belmont Drive. You’ve done surveys, been in focus groups, and participated in design workshops. We’ve found out a lot and have been busy putting it together into a concept plan.

We are excited to share it with you and with the Hood River Valley Parks and Recreation District Board of Directors, who will be the ultimate decision makers as to whether the project moves forward.

Here is the Concept Plan which is actually two documents, a Vision Statement and a Technical Report. They are large files so be patient as they load (its worth it!):

Along with reviewing the PSU plan, the Parks District will also be gauging public support for the park. Help keep the momentum going by joining us at this important presentation.  We need your support to turn ideas on paper into real playing fields, trails and picnic tables.

See below for results of our survey or here for a powerpoint of Park Preliminary Findings

COMMUNITY DESIGN WORKSHOP – APRIL 16

Photos from a great day at the proposed Westside Community Park on April 16. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the Hood River community for joining us on Saturday. We imagined parks indoors, experienced them outdoors, ate delicious food, and shared real ideas and visions for the future of Hood River. We are so excited we got to experience that with you all.
