Highlights from Community Park Open House

The NVCA Community Park open house was a fun, amazing day at the park. Here are some highlights:

Present & past board members celebrating all the progress at the park! We enjoyed making use of the new TLT-grant funded picnic tables. We hope others do too!

 

 

Several community donations and volunteers made the day special. The kids played and climbed on big rigs from Bros & Hoes, Nestucca Fire & Rescue & Tillamook County Sheriff. Hot dogs donated from Ben & Jeff’s and ice cream donated from Tillamook Creamery! Also fantastic kettle corn topped off the fun. 

Community Arts Project taught how to make kites. It was a special day and showed us the potential of this unique community space.

Significant Success for the Park in 2017

NVCA is excited to report to you that we have made some significant progress on the Park in 2016 and 2017.  We …….

  • Received a TLT grant of to develop the gravel parking lot at the entrance of the park property.
  • Contracted with HHPR for the landscape engineering and Earthworks (a local contractor) for construction of the parking lot
  • Were awarded a grant from Trust Management Services LLC (TMS) for the fifth annual and very successful Science Camp in 2017
  • Were given a grant from Tillamook Public Utility District (TPUD) to install a radio controller gate providing security and emergency vehicle access to the park 24/7.
  • Opened and operated a functional parking lot to help relieve the parking hassle for visitors and residents at Cape Kiwanda
  • Earned approximately $3,000 from parking proceeds with the lot operation.

We are on our way – and in 2018 will aggressively pursue grants to fund a children’s playground, picnic benches, trash and restroom facilities for the park.  We plan on an Open House for the park where visitors and residents alike can tour the park property, study the drawings and see that the community park is on its way.  Watch for future announcements.

Please donate your time or dollars to keep the momentum going.

We need your continuing support so, please visit the website at www.nestuccca.org  to volunteer and/or donate to this worthy cause.    Mail donations to PO Box 253, Pacific City, Oregon 971235.
