About Touch Stone Walkway Fundraiser

The Gresham Japanese Garden, also known as Tsuru Island (SueDo) is pleased to offer this special commemorative paver walkway fundraiser to support the needs of the Garden for now and its future. The Gresham Japanese Garden, a non-profit organization rebirthed in 2013 because of dedicated citizens in Gresham averages over 15,000 hours of volunteering a year. See History for details.

The first fundraising inititiative is the construction of the Touch Stone walkway. The second initiative is the building of Ebetsu Plaza. The gateway to the Plaza will be the Touch Stone walkway. This walkway lies in Main City Park at the farthest spot southeast you can walk. Visible and approachable from Springwater Trail, the Gresham-Barlow Youth Baseball diamond, and of course from walking through Main City Park.

Touch Stone walkway will be 7 feet wide by 50 feet long with the capacity to lay over 2000 bricks. Ebetsu Plaza, named after Ebestu, Japan, Gresham’s sister city will be a circular construction with benches made from the old bridge surrounded by twelve Akebono Cherry trees flanking the Touch Stone walkway. The Ebetsu Plaza will serve as a public gathering place, workshop and event venue for all of Gresham to enjoy.
