Historical Information
On August 7, 2014, Portland Parks Commissioner Amanda Fritz joined neighbors, partners, and special guests to reveal the name of the first developed park in the Cully neighborhood. It will be called Khunamokwst Park (pronounced KAHN-ah-mockst. Khunamokwst is a Chinook wawa name meaning "together". Khunamokwst will be the first PP&R park to enjoy a name indigenous to the land it sits on. Chinook wawa is the language commonly used by the original people of this area.

Supported with funding from Metro's voter-approved 2006 bond.

Khunamokwst Park was formally dedicated in a Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, May 16, 2015.
