Located along the south bank of the Tualatin River, where it intersects with Interstate 5, the Tualatin River Greenway Shared Use Path is a secure pedestrian and cycling alternative to driving – linking residents to workplaces, shops and business.
The Path was designed to promote health and well-being, provide a safe and enjoyable alternative to motor vehicle transport, and to connect the Oregon communities of Tualatin, Durham and Tigard not only to nature, but also to each other.
It is also an ecological and geological history tour, enjoyed by up to 10,000 walkers, runners and cyclists a month. Every step on the three-quarter mile, 12-foot-wide path equates to 25 years in geological time, interpreted through information kiosks and art installations. Users can travel back through 18,000 years of geological time and enjoy an outdoor, hands-on history lesson.
