PortolART: Support the Goettingen Cascades Stairway Transformation

Many of us are familiar with the 16th Avenue Tile Stair project but now it’s Portola’s turn to create something unique with our stairway.  A group of neighbors called the Goettingen Neighborhood Group, or G.N.G. for short, is currently fundraising to bring their creation to life. When complete, the idea is to create an art installation that will shimmer and even glow with the help electroluminescent paint and tile. The glass and ceramic waterway will “flow” down the hillside through the lush garden that the group has spent years cultivating at the intersection of Dwight & Goettingen.

The Cascades aren’t a done deal yet though.  The G.N.G. needs the community’s support reaching their financial goals in order to make this concept a reality.  There are two ways that we can all help:


  1. They are currently pursuing funding through a grant with the Parks Alliance in an online voting contest.  Please visit the website and vote and then email your friends and neighbors the link.  Vote Here:  VOTE
  2. The G.N.G. will be holding their annual Plant Sale this Saturday April 16th.  They will have a wide selection of plants for sale, booths with other local green related groups and a bouncy house for the kids…and maybe the adults.  More information on the beautiful poster below.
