As we noted last week, the planning process for River View Natural Area is already well underway. This 146 acre parcel of land sandwiched between the Willamette River, Lewis & Clark College, River View Cemetery, and SW Palatine Hill Road, is being restored and re-imagined for public use and conservation. One of the uses being considered is off-road bicycling.
The non-profit Northwest Trail Alliance has a representative on the Project Advisory Committee and they want to get more people involved in the process. The ride is taking place this Saturday (November 9th) in advance of an official community meeting and open house event being hosted by Portland Parks & Recreation next Tuesday (November 12th).
