Springwater Corridor / Oaks Bottom

3/31/20 > City of Portland Environmental Services and Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) are collaborating on a project to build a viewing platform next to the Springwater Corridor Trail overlooking the Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge.

… begin construction on the week of April 6 and be completed in June 2020. General construction hours will be from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, with some Saturday construction as needed.


Construction will be taking place next to the Springwater Corridor Trail. The Springwater Corridor Trail will need be narrowed temporarily near the project site to help keep trail users and construction activities safely separated. The Springwater Corridor Trail will remain open at all times during construction, but you may experience delays in and near the work area. Please slowdown in the construction zone and use caution. If you need assistance, a city inspector will be on-site during work hours and may be able to assist you.
