The City of Gresham has announced a public celebration and grand opening for the completion of Phase 1 of the Gresham-Fairview Trail.
The event — which coincides with National Trails Day — will kick off at 10 am this Saturday (6/2) and will include a formal dedication and festivites along the trail at NE Holladay St. and NE 201st Avenue.
The Gresham-Fairview Trail is a federally funded project (it also receives money from Metro’s 26-80 bond measure) and full completion of its 5.2 mile length is expected in fall of 2009.
Once complete, the 12-foot wide multi-use recreational trail will serve as a major north/south connector between the Springwater Trail and the 40-Mile Loop at Marine Drive, two regionally significant and heavily used trails.
