Astoria honors Chinese history

Garden of Surging Waves in Astoria, Ore.

Astoria, Ore. is honoring the “true history of the many contributions from Chinese pioneers not properly included in Astoria’s history” with the grand opening of the Garden of Surging Waves Park on May 17.

Construction began in April 2012. The park has been open to the public since February this year, but all the artwork and other features have not been in place until recently.

“This wonderful park will forever tell the important stories, benefits, and projects provided by the Chinese community,” said Mayor Willis L. Van Dusen. The park is located at the corner of Duane Street and 11th Street in downtown Astoria. (end)
