Want to learn about trail projects, plans and initiatives? Make a beeline for the Sixth Annual Barbara Walker Regional Trails Fair. Visit booths hosted by more than 40 organizations and give Metro ideas about what you want from regional trails.
Sign up for a walking tour of the Lloyd District. In the early 1960s, urban renewal created the Lloyd District, Portland's version of the "mega-mall;" and Memorial Coliseum; the largest sports / entertainment center in the city. Today, the Lloyd District is in transition. Join us for an easy urban stroll in this NE Portland neighborhood that the city of Portland hopes to transform into another high density, livable urban enclave. We'll also learn about two ambitious entrepreneurs, Ben Holladay (1819-1887) and Ralph Lloyd (1875-1953), whose legacies live on; in name and in spirit.
The Trails Fair is free and open to all - bring your colleagues, neighbors, friends and other trail enthusiasts.
