Volunteers organized by the Northwest Trail Alliance have already put in many hours of work over this past week to shape and create a new pump track at Ventura Park in East Portland. The project will be our city’s first such facility and the NWTA has officially partnered with the Portland Parks & Recreation to make it happen.
With the initial layout work completed, the NWTA now needs more volunteers. They’ve invited the public to join them for a work party and meet-and-greet event this Friday from 4:00 – 8:00 pm.
“Bring a shovel, wheelbarrow, or just some muscle and be a part of this “ground breaking” project!” says the NWTA’s website.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with class and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.
Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
