Gateway Green provides a much-needed site for off-road cycling and other outdoor recreation in East Portland.
Created through a collaborative partnership between Portland Parks and Recreation, Metro, and the non-profit Friends of Gateway Green, the 25-acre bike park is tucked between two major interstates of I-205 and I-84. The project provides enhanced skills bike trails for all levels and also includes the addition of a large public gathering space, play area, and improved park utilities, including drinking water and restrooms. 3J provided grading and stormwater design.
This project was awarded the Oregon Chapter APWA Project of the Year in the Structures (Parks; $5M to Less than $25M) category.
