JGarden Description:This library is a branch of the Multnomah County (Portland area) library system. The branch library opened on January 7, 1990, but the garden was completed and dedicated in May 1992.

According to correspondence with Susan Egan, the garden was a gift from the Gresham Sister City Committee to honor Gresham's Sister City of Ebetsu, Japan. The Committee solicited donations of money and materials from Gresham-area businesses and residents in order to create the "serenity of an oriental type setting for the library." In addition to 500 hours of volunteer work, Fujitsu Microelectronics and Boeing, Portland donated $25,000, another $28,000 came from fund-raising and in-kind donations of design, equipment and materials comprised an additional $12,000. The Library has had early trouble with vandalism and theft of expensive plant materials and the current condition of the garden is not known. 




Eternity
And the pine trees on Tortoise Hill
Reflected in the clear waters
Of the palace pond
