Springwater Open Space and Trails Master Plan – Gresham, Oregon

Springwater Open Space and Trails Master Plan

As part of a unique land use master planning team, GreenWorks prepared a Parks, Open Space, and Trails Master Plan for this a 1,500 acre community. The plan lays the groundwork for development over the next twenty years, transforming a relatively undeveloped landscape into a sustainable and responsible expansion of the region’s urban growth boundary. At final build out, more than 15,000 jobs and 4,000 housing units will be created. The Parks, Open Space, and Trails Master Plan will be based on national and local benchmarks for achieving levels of parks amenities that will support the future population. As part of the planning process, a study of strategies for creating park and open space amenities in a variety of contexts was explored to ensure a seamless and connected open space system that will work in conjunction with existing and proposed land uses, habitiat corridors, and stormwater facilities.
