The dream is so close!
These drawings haven’t been published anywhere else yet and they’ll be unveiled for the first time at the Community Gathering event tomorrow (4/28).
As you know, this bike park officially opened in June 2017. But that was just Phase 1. These represent Phases 2 and 3 of the $3 million project. As you can see it includes a ton of exciting new features like: Three improved entrances (south, main, and north); several new trails and paths, including a hiking trail; seating area; overlooks; expanded pump track; nature play area; adaptive cycling trail; challenge course; upgraded landscaping and picnic areas, and more!
According to Friends of Gateway Green Co-Chair Linda Robinson, the park will be closed this coming October to November for construction and will open again in June 2019. There will be another round of construction the following winter to complete the plans.
You can learn more, see the design up-close, and chat with Parks staff and Gateway Green planners at tomorrow’s event from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (10301 NE Glisan St).
