One spring morning in 2007, Lee Dayfield took her dog for a walk. As she passed an empty field, she saw a sign that would forever change her life. It read “for sale.”

The desolate plot of grass sat next to 10 acres ringed by a chain-link fence and barbed wire. Where others may have seen a $900,000 meadow, Dayfield saw a two-acre opportunity: a nature-based play area for the Gresham neighborhood’s children, many of them Native American.

Rockwood Rising! A Dynamic mixed-use program. Creating an economic engine to transform Rockwood into a prosperous, healthy, and thriving community. We are beginning design. Help us this June. Info here!

We are beginning design. Help us this June!

WHAT IT IS: We're creating an economic engine to transform Rockwood into a prosperous, healthy, and thriving community that welcomes and creates opportunities for all.

WHERE: A 5.5-acre Commission owned property at 18535 SE Stark Street - the former Fred Meyer site. We are designing several new buildings and a public plaza.

Hello Rockwood,
My name is Roy Kim and my company, RKm Development, has partnered with the Gresham Redevelopment Commission (GRDC) for the exciting development of the Rockwood Rising site. We are honored and eager to have this opportunity to create a new community gathering place in the heart of your energetic, growing community.

Our experienced staff of designers is currently engaged in the extensive planning process, along with our friends at GRDC. We are working with YBA Architects, Place Studio, and Robert Foster Associates to develop a space that this community will be proud to call its own.

Rockwood is a special place. We want to create a space thoughtfully and carefully, with the hopes of building something that everyone can take pride in and engage with. Your help will be critical to designing, developing, and building a community that meets your needs. We look forward to the opportunity to design this together, and hope to see you at Rock the Block on June 3rd & 4th!

Additionally, we want to learn more about you! You can call us at: (503)618-2416, or email us at: rockwoodrising@greshamoregon.gov.

Thank you, Rockwood community, for allowing us the opportunity. Together, I wholeheartedly believe that we can make Rockwood rise.

Sincerely,
Roy Kim

You'll find plenty of root vegetables, braising greens and lettuces, and of course plant starts for your own vegetable garden.

Bring your reusable shopping bags and plenty of small bills, though some of the markets will trade you a credit/debit card for wooden tokens that all vendors accept, which can be easier to handle than cash. We've indicated those markets that accept EBT or other food assistant coupons.
