Tualatin River Greenway Trail is open – Official Grand Opening event scheduled for April 9

There is a new trail that is open in Tualatin! The trail starts very near the trail system running through Tualatin Community Park and Cook Park, with easy access to the Fanno Creek Trail in Tigard and Beaverton. It is not a long trail - only 0.75 miles - but it is a great addition to this trail system as it follows the Tualatin River and runs underneath I-5. The trail runs behind the shopping centers anchored by Cabela's (on the west side of the freeway) and Best Buy and Road Runner Sports (on the east side of the freeway).

This new trail segment starts at Barngrover Way next to the Tualatin Public Library to Nyberg Lane, where there used to be a RV park on Nyberg Lane. If you have run with the Portland Marathon Training Clinic on their Road Runner Sports Tualatin route, you would have run right by this in the first mile of the run.

An additional trail segment is planned, as seen on the right side of the map pictured above as “future trail segment.”

The grand opening details:

When: Saturday, April 9, 2016

What time: 1-1:30p

I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
