Chimney/Pier Park Bridge Project meeting April 24th

Portland Parks and Recreation is hosting this meeting on Wednesday, April 24th, 6:30 – 8:00 pm at the St. Johns Community Center.

This is your chance to understand how construction of the pedestrian/bike bridge will impact access to and use of both Chimney and Pier Parks from April 2013 to November 2013.

Construction impacts may include:

  • Temporary loss of access to park areas
  • Realignment of disc golf course
  • Reduced size of off-leash area.

Friends of Pier Park board has cancelled the April FoPP meeting because several board members are unavailable to attend on April 16th. In addition, we want you to come to the Pier Park Pick-Up on April 20th and to attend the meeting listed above. The next Friends of Pier Park meeting will be Tuesday, May 21st.
