The construction of Waterfront Park began in 2008. A massive community effort including donations and grants made the park possible.
The land, originally designated for light industrial purposes, was donated to the city by the Port of Hood River in 2005 with the condition that a park be developed within 7 years. The Waterfront Community Park Association was formed in 2006 to address the challenge.
Today the Waterfront Park is a favorite of visitors and includes a swimming beach, small amphitheater for music events, a children’s play area, covered picnic structures and a grassy rigging area with adjacent launch for windsurfing, standup paddle boards, out-riggers and other non-motorized water crafts. A waterfront walking path that connects the Event Site to The Hook passes through the park.
