WAUD BLUFF TRAIL OPEN HOUSE
Location: Chiles Center – Hall of Fame Room, University of Portland, 5000 N Willamette Blvd. 6:00 – 8:00 PM
The Waud Bluff Trail is a short connector that provides access from North Willamette Blvd. near the University of Portland to North Basin Avenue on Swan Island. This project will upgrade the existing path and provide a bridge over the railroad tracks. Even though Swan Island’s bikeways, sidewalks, and off-street trails are not currently completed, this upgraded trail will make it much safer to walk or bike to Swan Island businesses, the Willamette Greenway trail, and McArthur Riverfront Park.
There are great views of the Willamette River and Swan Island from Willamette Blvd. in North Portland. But the informal trail down the bluff is in disrepair and it ends at the railroad tracks at the foot of the hill. For many years, citizens and trail planners have dreamed of a safe new trail that bridges the railroad tracks and provides a connection to the North Willamette Greenway. Now, thanks to funding from the Oregon Transportation.
