Completed in 1926, the column is a monumental piece of Astoria's history. Located at the top of Coxcomb Hill, the Column stretches upwards 125 feet, with 164 spiral steps to reach the viewing deck. Being a destination for visitors and locals alike, views from the Column are breathtaking, and like none other on the Oregon Coast; Pacific Ocean to the West and Columbia River to the North

Ashley Schacher

When Aquatics Manager, Genessee Dennis, arrived in September, there were no Aquaducks classes because we did not have a teacher.  Ashley was asked if she were interested in working with babies - knowing she was a swimmer.  Ashley willingly obliged and was eager to learn.  She was given the resources for instruction and she developed the curriculum on her own.  She has even taken on private instruction and other swimming lessons.  Ashley is awesome with the kids and their parents.  She is self-motivated and never misses her shifts.  Not everyone is willing or good at working with really young children, so thank you Ashley for all you do at the Astoria Aquatic Center!
