Historic Hood River
Remember this? Hard to believe it was 2008 when construction started on the Hood River Waterfront Park. That fundraising sign had marked the bare, windswept lot for many months, and then suddenly heavy equipment showed up and dirt started moving. In a couple of months “Phase 1” of the construction was complete.
Those of you who follow Historic Hood River will know why I like to think a little bit of the spirit of Koberg Beach lives on in this modern creation. It may not have a dance pavilion, but I suspect in the past decade many Hood River children got their first taste of Columbia River water splashing around at the Waterfront Park swim beach.
