This 25-acre island between I-84 and I-205 just north of the Gateway Regional Center and east of Rocky Butte was recently purchased by Portland Parks & Recreation. In partnership with the Friends of Gateway Green, a nonprofit dedicated to creating a sustainable recreational facility on this unused property, the site is planned for singletrack trails with integrated skills features, a tot track with skills features and play area, a pump park, a flow trail, beginner, intermediate and advanced jump lines and a dual slalom course. The site may also be used for cyclocross events. The I-205 multi-use path runs along the western edge of the property, providing access to the site by bike via the 40 Mile Loop. The Gateway Regional Center provides transit services to the site from three MAX train routes.
The Friends of Gateway Green hosted Community Cross, a family-friendly cyclocross exhibition race for all ages and abilities, at the site in 2014. The Northwest Trail Alliance is partnering to construct interim trails to be used for off-road cycling camps hosted by the Community Cycling Center in summer and fall of 2016. The Northwest Trail Alliance and the International Mountain Bike Association will be assisting in design of the planned facilities.
