Gresham's New Multi-Use Path
Get ready for a great new amenity, a 12-ft wide pedestrian and bike path running two miles along the light rail line from Cleveland Station in downtown to Ruby Junction Station in Rockwood. The path was built with grant funds from Metro and the Oregon Department of Transportation.
The path reconnects downtown, the Civic Center and Rockwood and is a key element of the City's strategy to attract new and expand existing businesses and to promote small business development.
The path serves as a safe off-street route for students, commuters, shoppers and fitness fans of all kinds. It provides better access to local parks, public transit, schools and businesses – and it connects the Gresham-Fairview and Springwater trails, creating an uninterrupted six-mile loop.
