Event description

We’re putting the finishing touches on Gateway Green’s trails, skills park, and dirt jumps in preparation for their opening June 24th. To that aim, we’re organizing several small, targeted work parties to get these features dialed in, and we’d love your help. Here are the details:

What: Work the trails, sculpt the jumps, whack weeds, install signage, pick up trash … whatever needs to be done.

When: Four dates — June 3rd, 4th, 10th, and 11th — all 10am to 2pm or so. Be assured you’ll find beer afterward!

Where: Meet at the storage units located in the central area of the park. Bike in via the I-205 multi-use path, either from the north or south, and plan to ride the features after we’re done with the day’s work.

We’re pulling this together on short notice, so it won’t be supported to the level of last February’s Big Dig. Bring snacks and water to keep you fueled plus boots, gloves, and eye protection. With work parties underway elsewhere, tools may be at a premium, so bring what you’ve got.

Drop Tom Archer (tom.archer.pdx@gmail.com) a note if you plan to attend or have a question, and feel free to pass this on to your friends.

We hope to see you at one of these dates, and at the opening June 24th!
