The City of Wood Village continues to forge a relationship with the descendants of these original inhabitants, who now, among many others, make up the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde. To learn more about the Tribes, visit the The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Facebook page or their website at grandronde.org.
In a joint effort to build a shared bond and future, the Wood Village City Council and the Tribes council members meet periodically each year. The latest meeting took place on Thursday, October 26, 2023 at the Wood Village City Hall & Civic Center. At this latest meeting, the group planted a cedar tree in honor and memory of the late Kathryn Harrison, one of the Tribes most influential and respected leaders. Thank you to the Tribes council members for blessing the tree planted in Kathryn's honor and for allowing the City to participate in an honored traditional ceremony.
Former Multnomah County Greyhound Park
The Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde purchased the land and property of the former Multnomah County Greyhound Park located in Wood Village. The Tribes leaders continue to meet with City officials and staff to discuss the future development prospects of this property.
