Gresham-Springwater_Spur (1)GreenWorks assisted the City of Gresham with the design of the Springwater Spur Trail project, part of the Phase One of the Main City Park Master Plan. The trail completed a significant connection between the existing Springwater Trail and Downtown Gresham through the popular 21.6-acre Main City Park. GreenWorks helped to ensure the design met the provisions of the grants and funding requirements by OPRD, ODOT and Metro. The Spur was designed as an ADA accessible, multi-use trail for pedestrians, bicycles, service and emergency vehicles. The design of the Springwater Trail Spur supports the City’s goals for sustainability by incorporating stormwater quality facilities to treat trail run-off and existing parking lot facilities that were formerly untreated. Associated features of the project include gateway design elements, landscaping, model stormwater management facilities, irrigation, lighting and trail signage. Finally, the Springwater Trail Spur created a sense of place by incorporating a new trailhead and prominent gateway feature at the south end of the trail where it abuts the Springwater Trail.
