A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

A year later, visiting Thurston Park again

Written September 6th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

Did they ever complete the renovation of Sunrise Park, I was wondering one day last week. So, riding along on Queen Avenue, on my way somewhere else, I turned right on Thurston Street to take a look.


Rebuilding Sunrise and two streets

Written March 16th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

Sunrise Park and sections of two major streets — Hill and Oak — are about to be rebuilt, totaling more than $3 million in city public works spending in South Albany this year.


Sunrise Park: Renovation in sight

Written April 17th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

The renovation of Sunrise Park, first considered in 2013, is finally scheduled to take place this year now that the city of Albany has obtained the required permits and spent $38,000 in federal antipoverty grant money to make up for the loss of a patch of so-called “wetlands.”

On a cold but sunny Saturday, with a brisk tailwind from the north, I’m sailing along on Albany’s Periwinkle Bikepath, thinking about — what else? — poverty and federal funds.
