Friends of Terwilliger and Portland Parks and Recreation will be on hand to offer instruction, tools, gloves, and snacks. Show some love for one of Portland’s favorite parks to run, bike, and enjoy nature.
A trio of big development proposals with profound implications for Terwilliger Parkway are working their way through the public approval process. All three relate to OHSU and how people get there and are located on Terwilliger at Campus Drive. It’s early in the process for all three proposals and FOT is determined to be there every step of the way to advocate for the preservation and enhancement of the parkway. The involvement and support of you, our Friends, will be critical to whether or not these projects improve the parkway or alter it irreparably.
Work continues to re-build the retaining rock wall leading to Eagle Point; part of Terwilliger Parkway. Eagle Point was first identified by Portland city founders as a key viewpoint in the late 1890s. A house was soon built here and stood for over 100 years. It was probably at this time that the retaining rock wall was built. Here’s a photo of the work taken October 30th.
