The Green Loop

A 21st Century Public Works Project for Portland

Linking key pieces of the existing open space network,  the loop would develop a safe, easy and fun way for all Portlanders to walk, jog, roll or bike to and from the regional destinations and cultural attractions found in the central city. 

The Green Loop is about providing public space, offering healthy choices, organizing growth, connecting the city and advancing equity. Learn all about it here
