LEADING WTIH PURPOSE

Community In Action

Sahalee Park has its roots as a one square block pioneer developed park. It served a role as a long time gathering place for community, family celebrations, and has been equipped with child play facilities and a basketball court. Recently, through a gift from the Bean Foundation the park was doubled in size with additional open areas, trees and a small outdoor performance area. The master plan called for the installation of a spray park.

The City of Madras with the support of the Foundation, Keith Manufacturing and several other businesses, local citizens and governmental entities applied for a grant to build the Spray Park and related amenities. The City emphasized, our low income, diversity, the active use of the parks, summer weather and the broad community support. The grant has been awarded and supplemented by developing a water recycle program and enhanced ADA design.

FROM THE COMMUNITY

You can’t go anywhere in Madras without seeing the impact of the Bean Foundation. From Juniper Hills Park to the Madras Aquatic Center to Sahalee Park, the Bean Foundation is a driver for community improvement.
