The scenic waterfall realm that will become Punchbowl Falls Park has passed into Hood River County’s hands.
Western Rivers Conservancy, a Portland conservation non-profit, transferred the 103-acre property at the confluence of the East and West Fork Hood River to the county on Friday. The county signed a purchase and sale agreement to buy the land in late March, but the land actually came into their ownership last week.
Construction on new trails is expected this summer, with planning to refine the park’s designs beginning this week.Hood River
