Today, from 10 a.m. to noon the final piece of the new 1.5 loop trail at Delta Ponds will be dropping into place. Contractors will be utilizing a crane to set the 100-foot bridge into its final home. This work will be followed by a new boardwalk installation in the Spring. Together these new amenities will create a long awaiting trail experience that allows visitors to make a continues loop around natural area.
Funding for this project comes from the 2018 Parks and Recreation Bond, System Development Charges and a $350,000 Oregon Parks and Recreation Department Local Government Grant.
