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

Gad Perez

Gad started about 8 months ago after hearing that we needed help.  Gad has always valued the good community work that Parks brings to Astoria and wanted to get involved. Since that time, she has branched into many roles here at the Aquatic Center; one of the biggest is that of Lead Cashier.

 

Lead Cashier is responsible for helping hire and train front desk staff, manage the point of sales system, and also invoices our major public accounts. She is constantly making improvements to our point of sales system in order to increase efficiency at the front desk - which translates to better customer service. In that short amount of time, she has also become a certified lifeguard and a lead guard because she understands what it means to be a team player and is always willing to help out when needed.

 

Thank You,Gad, for everything you do for Astoria Parks and Recreation.
