Middle Fork Willamette River Path Open House, June 27

Willamalane Park and Recreation District, in coordination with the Oregon Department of Transportation, is planning to build a 4-mile walking and bicycling path along the north bank of the Middle Fork of the Willamette River , between Clearwater Park and Dorris Ranch Living History Farm in Springfield .

Stage 1 of this exciting project, between Clearwater Park and Quarry Creek, is expected to be built in 2009. Stage 2, between Quarry Creek and Dorris Ranch Living History Farm, will be built after additional funds are obtained. Please see the attached map and project summary for more information.

Willamalane strives to build the best parks and recreation facilities for the people who use them, within the constraints of available funds. So, as future path users and interested parties, we want to hear from you!

You are invited to attend a Middle Fork Willamette River Path Open House on Wednesday, June 27, from 4 to 6:30 p.m., at Willamalane’s new Community Recreation Center , 250 S. 32nd St., Springfield (just south of Main Street , next to the Regional Sports Center ).

Drop by any time between 4 and 6:30, learn more about the project, and let us know what you think. We look forward to seeing you on the 27th.
