Garden of Surging Waves Dedication
Saturday, May 17, 2014, at 10:30 am, a crowd gathered at the corner of 11th and Duane Streets in downtown Astoria to officially open the first phase of the Astoria Heritage Square. Celebrating the contribution of the Chinese pioneers to this area, the Garden of Surging Waves is a tribute to the men and women who helped build Astoria. It will be a beautiful, meditative place for citizens to enjoy for a long time. The sturgeon mosaic in the Pavilion of Transition is a shiny, bright spot in the garden, and I am extremely proud to have been able to bring it to life, with the help of my nine fabulous assistants!
