Event Hall & Community Center

Kyoudou Center

aka Resource Center

This building is the Gresham Japanese Garden’s home base—where we come together every Saturday to work in the gardens. We conduct our workshops, cultural events, special events, weddings, etc. in this building too.

GJG is finishing a capital campaign transforming the building to Japanese-inspired architecture. The community has answered our call by buying items from our online auction, attending a fun in-person event, and purchasing raffle tickets! Some have just sent in checks donating to our cause. It’s our goal to create the Gresham Japanese Garden as a cultural destination. If you’re in a position to donate to GJG, we’d sure appreciate the support. Donate here.
