The state has awarded a $523,000 grant to fund improvements at Nadaka Nature Park in Gresham’s Wilkes East neighborhood.

"It is unbelievable," said Lee Dayfieid, who cried, laughed and screamed when she heard the news last week that the park, through its partnership with the city of Gresham, won the $523,480 grant from the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.

The money means that the little-known and once-neglected forested area in the middle of the city can become a full-blown neighborhood park complete with community gardens, a nature-based play area, picnic shelter and improved walking trail.

Gresham is a great community, with one of the most efficient local governments in Oregon.

But additional revenue is needed now to keep the community safe and vibrant and the City’s financial foundation stable. That’s why this fall your City Council will consider a monthly Police, Fire & Parks Fee of $7.50 – assessed to households
