South Waterfront Greenway - Central District Improvements
JWF is partnering with the City of Portland Bureau of Parks and Recreation and a host of other stakeholders including the Cityís Bureau of Environmental Services, Bureau of Development Services, Department of Transportation and Water Bureau; TriMet; Oregon Department of Transportation; Portland Development Commission and the South Waterfront neighborhood to construct the first of several improvements to the area.††
This 100-foot wide regional park extends along the riverbank and near-shore area of the Willamette River for a little over a mile between the Marquam Bridge and an existing trail at Johnís Landing.† This project also is one of the first in the region to attempt large-scale restoration of a blighted riverbank into functioning habitat for threatened and endangered fish.† The park will include a mix of lawn, park and plaza areas, separate asphalt paths for bicycles and concrete pedestrian trails and habitat improvements at the riverís edge, including a shallow gravel bench.†
