City Releases Willamette River Recreation Strategy

The City of Portland’s Office of Healthy Working Rivers and Portland Parks and Recreation recently released the draft “Willamette River Recreation Strategy.” This draft document outlines recreation policy guidance and identifies specific river recreation actions over the next five to 15 years in order to meet the city’s growing river recreation demand.


With 17 miles of the Willamette flowing through the City of Portland, and with so many Portlanders enjoying recreation on and along the Willamette, this report is worth a look. The City is taking feedback and comments on the draft document through Friday, December 9. You can share your thoughts by email, phone, letter, or by taking a quick online survey.
