Gresham Greenways

Neighborhood greenways are on low-traffic streets that connect people to parks, schools and business districts. Greenways provide a safer option for people to walk or bike and provide an alternative to bike lanes on high-speed streets. Greenways are part of the City’s Active Transportation Plan, titled Bikes Routes for Everyone.

Greenway projects 

Thanks to Metro funding, the City is installing three new greenways this year.

Rockwood Bike Route expansion (BR3)

This new route runs along NE Pacific and NE Multnomah, connecting the Rockwood Bike Route project (BR4). View the Gresham Greenway bike route.

West Gresham connector (BR1)

This new route provides a safe route to destinations in Rockwood. View the West Gresham Connector map.

Gresham-Fairview Trail connector (BR9)

This new route connects our existing regional trail system to downtown Gresham. View the Gresham-Fairview Trail connector map.

Gresham Trails

Gresham has a great trail system that connects to key destinations around the city and to the regional trail network. Gresham offers a variety of multi-use trails. Learn more

Trail projects 

Gresham-Fairview Trail gap project

This year, the City will construct a 12-foot multi-use path along the west side of NE 201st, between NE Halsey and NE Sandy. The new 0.6-mile trail connects Gresham-Fairview Trail on both ends and constructs a new crossing to connect to the I-84 multi-use path. View the map.

This project is funded by Metro.

Wy'East Way Signage

The City installed signs along the two-mile, 12-foot-wide multi-use path that runs along the MAX light rail line from Ruby Junction Station in Rockwood to Cleveland Station in downtown Gresham. The new signs identify the Wy'East Way and highlight local destinations people can visit without using a vehicle.

Rockwood Bike Route (BR4)

The City installed a new bike route through the heart of Rockwood – the first of the Gresham Greenways planned in the City's 2017 Active Transportation Plan. The bike route runs along SE 187th, SE 188th and NE 188th, from SE Yamhill to NE Hassalo. It connects neighborhoods to the Downtown Rockwood development, Hartley Elementary School and Kirk Park.

Gresham-Fairview Trail Gap

In 2023, the City filled in a gap on the Gresham-Fairview Trail at Burnside and 197th Ave. where it connects to the Wy'East Way path. It provides a more direct connection between the trails so users can avoid traveling on-street. The City held a ribbon-cutting and inaugural ride to celebrate.
