As of January 2015, we have achieved our goal of raising and securing the funds to purchase our building! These funds came from more than 125 individual/family donors ranging in size from $5.00 to $5,000; local businesses; service clubs; as well as Urban Renewal funds from the City of The Dalles. This means that Wonderworks will remain at 206 Madison St. in historic downtown The Dalles for many years to come.
December 2015 update: Parking lot improvements are underway! The lot will be paved, landscaped and made safer for families.
Spring 2016: Parking lot complete! Beautifully paved, lines clearly marked for parking spaces
Fall 2016: Little Free Library installed in parking lot. Please check out our selection of children’s books, and resources related to children, families and parenting. You are welcome to take books and leave some for others!
January 2017: Our 2 extra large skylights replaced, thus keeping our space bright and filled with natural light
