Funding Partnership with IMBA Will Expand Skills Area at Gateway Green

Written by Lisa Olivares, Executive Director

Thanks to a funding partnership with IMBA, Northwest Trail Alliance is working with Portland Parks and Recreation, Stacy and Witbeck, TriMet, and other local partners to update and expand the mountain bike skills area of Gateway Green.

Gateway Green is an immensely popular park that offers singletrack trails, an adaptive mountain bike area, jump lines, pump tracks, and more. Bike riders of all ages and abilities are meeting, riding, and building their confidence on a bike throughout the park, which is also utilized for our adult clinics and youth programming. Located between I-205 and I-84, the park is in an area of the city where underserved communities have had difficult access to nature and bike trails.  Kids that participated in our Gateway Green summer biking camps have reported that without access to parks like this, they would not have a place to ride at all.

The updates will begin in mid-November; if you are interested in getting involved or have any questions, please emailĀ [email protected].
