Exciting times are ahead for the park in the fall of 2016.
The story of the efforts to create a new park at the north end of the Gateway District continues to unfold. Efforts to turn 35 acres of underused publically-owned land that proponents say will one day become “Gateway Green” has continued to pick up momentum.
Relying on the vision, tenacity and collaborative skills he used to launch projects for affordable home ownership, rentals and an artist community, real estate developer Ted Gilbert is focused on bringing a regional bicycle park to Portland’s most “park deficient” region.
A hidden treasure sits right in East Portland: 38-acres of unused, partially wooded land at the confluence of I-84 and I-205. After years of grassroots support, followed by partnerships with government, private business and non-profit organizations, we have the opportunity to transform this asset into Gateway Green, a multi-use park that enhances our exciting, vibrant part of the city.
