Riding the Willamette waterfront is one of Portland's signature joys. But despite longstanding ambitions, we have a ways to go towards embracing the Willamette River as the heart of the central city.

Replacing an expressway with Waterfront Park and improving the river’s environmental quality are major successes. But park visitors have few opportunities to engage directly with the river and the downtown waterfront lacks vibrancy, due to difficult connections to the central business district, neighborhoods and the eastside.

Come hear about "Activate the Waterfront," a set of strategies and recommendations to enliven Tom McCall Waterfront Park – and preserve the joy.
