The Hermiston Parks and Recreation Department will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Greenwood Park on Thursday, June 13.

The event gets under way at 5:30 at N.W. Spruce and Beech Ave.

The park, which used to be known as Northside Park, has been undergoing some major renovations.

The park was renamed Greenwood Park in 2016 after a decision was made to renovate the small park. It is named after Greenwood Luster who spearheaded the park’s creation in the early 1970s so his children to play in.


  1. I remember Greenwood Luster. He was a very nice man, and also stood out in Hermiston because he was a member of a small group of African-Americans in town. I am glad to see he is remembered with something concrete to represent all the good he has done in Hermiston, my home town.
