Park Opens June 24 for ‘By Donation’ Parking

Nestucca Valley Community Alliance (NVCA) is planning to open their community park space near Cape Kiwanda for ‘by-donation’ parking during busy weekends in Pacific City.

NVCA plans to partner with local non-profit organizations during busy weekends to offer overflow parking on the newly-graveled parking lot at the future site of the community park. The goal of this “soft-opening” is to help alleviate parking congestion at Cape Kiwanda and to provide a fund-raising opportunity for the NVCA and partnering local charities. Organizations will be invited to host the 60-space parking lot on peak-use dates requesting cash donations for parking.

“The NVCA is very excited to start utilizing the park space in this way,” says NVCA Board President Paul Carlson. “We are still in the beginning phase of the project but it’s ready for parking so we are happy it can start to benefit the local community.”

The parking lot ‘soft-opening’ is currently slated for June 24th and the NVCA is hoping to have a more concrete time-table and  procedure beginning July 1. NVCA is seeking community partners to co-host the parking lot on the busy summer days. Parking donations will be shared at 60/40% rate in the partner organization’s favor.

Community organizations are encouraged to contact the NVCA at if they would like to host the parking lot during this upcoming peak tourist season.

NVCA is in the process of completing Phase 1 of a multi-phase plan for a community park, that when completed will be a place for community events, family gatherings, educational opportunities and a center of activity for all ages. Community volunteers and donations are essential to the success of this project.

The mission of the NVCA is to bring education opportunities and recreation venues to the community. Visit the NVCA website where you can donate and volunteer.  Watch the Facebook page for more information and to keep up-to-date on future events.
