Since 2002 the Cascade Community Foundation has believed that it takes more than assets alone to create a strong community. What truly makes the difference is how those assets are woven together to craft stories, spark relationships, and care for treasured places. We have worked to weave those assets together to ensure that the Cascade community is not just a place to be… but a place to belong. Our mission is to be the thread that pulls it all together and in order to continue to carry out that mission we are embarking on an exciting journey. During October 2013, the Cascade Community Foundation kicked-off a comprehensive $2.4 million dollar Community is our Middle Name—Enrichment Project.
With the help of many community stakeholders, donors, as well as the GRFAA, the Community is our Middle Name – Enrichment Project campaign completed in 2015. The architecture firm chosen was Mathison & Mathison Architects, Owen-Ames Kimball was the construction manager and the GRFAA managed the project. With new private restroom facilities, new and plentiful picnic tables and benches, this improved park will be enjoyed by the masses.
The project completed in mid May 2017 with a ribbon cutting May 31, and the Cascade Community Foundation kick off party held on June 14.
