Kʰunamokwst (pronounced KAHN-ah-mockst) is a Chinook wawa name meaning "together". Kʰunamokwst Park is the first PP&R park to enjoy a name indigenous to the land it sits on. Chinook wawa is the language commonly used by the original people of this area.
On August 7, 2014, Portland Parks Commissioner Amanda Fritz joined neighbors, partners, and special guests to reveal the Kʰunamokwst Park name of the first developed park in the Cully neighborhood.
Supported with funding from Metro's voter-approved 2006 bond.
Khunamokwst Park was formally dedicated in a Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, May 16, 2015.
