The development of a display and test garden was initiated in 1950 by the Portland Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society. Sam Jackson, owner of the Oregon Journal, had donated 27 acres on Terwilliger Blvd for the garden, but the site was deemed unsuitable because of its steep terrain. Claude I. Sersanous, one of the group assigned to select a new site, suggested the garden's present location near Reed College. Referred to as Shakespeare Island by Reed College students because of the Shakespearean plays that had been performed there, it was abandoned and overgrown with brush and blackberries. Through the efforts of chapter memebers and other volunteers, and with the support of Park Superintendent C.P. Keyser, the garden flourished.

The site which now bears the name Cathedral Park is steeped in history. It is believed to be one of the 14 Lewis and Clark landing sites in the Vancouver-Portland area: William Clark and eight men camped there on April 2, 1806. This spot had been a fishing and camping site for many area Indian tribes. In 1847, the founder of St. Johns, James John, settled on the site and operated a ferry to Linnton across the Willamette River. In 1931, the St. Johns Bridge was built on the site with 400-ft towers and a main span of 1,207 feet. It is the only steel suspension bridge in Portland and is designated as an official historical landmark.

In the early 1970s, Howard Galbraith, the `honorary mayor` of unincorporated St. Johns, got tired of the junkyard state of the area under the eastern end of the bridge. He organized a drive that eventually raised $7.5 million to build a park. After eight years of community fundraising, combined with state, county and city funding, the park was dedicated at a community celebration on May 3, 1980. It got its name from a photo of the St. Johns Bridge by Al Monner that appeared on the front page of the Oregon Journal in 1968. Reference was made to its beautiful cathedral-like arches and the park found its name.<\/p>","post_name":"cathedral-park","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"45.5886","lng":"-122.761","distance":"21.2","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/oregon-adventurecation\/cathedral-park\/","terms":"an

Latourell Falls is usually the first waterfall seen along the Columbia Gorge Scenic Highway. Because of this, it usually leaves quite an impression on first-time visitors. The falls plunge 224 feet over a massive wall of columnar basalt – some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest – before cascading hastily toward the Columbia River. This waterfall is usually most recognized for the large patch of bright yellow lichen adorning the cliff face to the right of the falls, and this characteristic has led many famous photographers to give this location their treatment. The drainage of Latourell Creek is rather small, so the falls become significantly less impressive later in the year, but are always worth stopping for a quick look.<\/p>","post_name":"latourell-falls","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"45.5226","lng":"-122.369","distance":"22.3","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/geotourism-sustainable-travel\/latourell-falls\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"672765","post_title":"Alpacas of Oregon","post_content":"","post_name":"alpacas-of-oregon","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"45.3657","lng":"-122.907","distance":"22.3","permalink":"\/see-do\/attractions\/aquariums-zoos\/alpacas-of-oregon\/","terms":"an Aquariums & Zoo<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Attractions<\/a>)"},{"ID":"109774","post_title":"Champoeg State Heritage Area","post_content":"
