Temporary Closure - TriMet Construction Project

Due to TriMet's "A Better Red" construction project to improve the MAX Red Line, the south end of the park will be closed until summer 2024. Closures related to the Better Red project will impact the south entrance and upper sections of the gravity lines (Linda's Line and Rebar Ridge Trails). 

The rebuilding of the gravity lines will begin in April with an anticipated opening date of August 24, 2024. A grand opening celebration is anticipate to coincide with our annual "Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day" activities on Saturday, October 5, 2024. 

In addition to improving the MAX Red Line, this project will also benefit Gateway Green by improving access to the park. PP&R appreciates your patience as our partners proceed with their work, for the benefit of everyone in the region, including visitors to Gateway Green. 

During construction, you can access the park through the northern hub entry near the pump track.

For more information, including renderings of park closures, please see the project page at Gateway Green.

Visitor Access and Guidance

Help Gateway Green be a good neighbor:
  • Please, do not park in Maywood Park. Parking is available on-street around Gateway Transit Center.
  • Stay on pathways when outside the park.
  • Leave no trace, and pack out what you pack in.

This park is car-free! Walkers and bicycle riders can reach the site via the Hub entry, on the eastern side of the park near the Pump Track. 

Dogs are required to be on a leash at all times in the park.

Wet Weather Rules
Please remember the following wet weather guidelines when riding; we need your help to keep Gateway Green’s trails and features in great shape during the Northwest winter. Scout the ride and use extra caution on wet or muddy days.

  • Single-track riders: Stay off the trails following significant rain events (if you would leave a boot or tire track, don’t use the trails)
  • Jump-line riders: No riding during muddy days
  • Skills area/ Pump track: No riding once mud begins to stick to wood features or on the pump track

Thanks for riding considerately and for keeping our parks safe and fun.
