Gateway Green Work Day
September 19 @ 9:30 am – 2:00 pm
Saturday September 19, 2020 – Northwest Trail Alliance in partnership with Portland Parks & Rec is hosting it’s 1st Dig Day of 2020 at The Dirt Lab @ Gateway Green!
Phase 2 construction has been continuing at your local mountain bike park at Gateway Green. Contractor Sasquatch Trails has been hard at work moving the dirt on the hillside canvas to install 2 lines on the south hill side. Now we need you to come and get things shaped and ready for the park to open in November.
Due to COVID – 19 we are strictly limiting the number of volunteers. We NEED you to pre register & sign the online waiver prior to the event. Day of & non pre-registered volunteers will be turned away. We have mandatory guidelines for facial coverings and social distancing measures that need to be followed. This will be shared with your registration confirmation. Please understand that this is not only for your safety but for the safety of our entire community.
The Dirt Lab has been a great success since it opened in June of 2017! Our community has enjoyed the singletrack trails, pumptrack, skills area, and jumps. Now with the Portland Parks Phase 2 upgrades, the park is going to be even better.
No dogs please.
