The City wants to understand how getting around town can help you stay active, fit and healthy. Join us for a 2.2-mile walk from Gresham's Civic Center on Eastman Parkway to the new Rockwood Rising site on 187th and Stark Street. Along the walk, we want to hear from you about what street improvements would make walking and biking easier, safer and more enjoyable in Gresham. Slip on your walking shoes and join us.
Families, strollers and mobile chairs are welcome.

Language translation other than English available upon request; call 971-231-7426 to schedule.

At the Rockwood Rising site, come out to see what plans the Gresham Redevelopment Commission has been cooking up for a new Rockwood town center. Sample free foods from many different cultural cuisines from local entrepreneurs and food vendors. Learn what types of programs and services could be located there, and how you and your family can give input about what you'd like to see there.
