Eastbank Esplanade

The Eastbank Esplanade, a 1.3-mile pedestrian/bicycling trail that extends along the east bank of downtown Portland's Willamette River between the Steel and Hawthorne bridges, opened in the spring of 2001.

Highlights of the $30 million project include a 1,200-foot walkway that sits atop the river, an adjoining 120-foot public boat dock, public art and the new Steel Bridge pedestrian/ bicycle crossing at riverbank level.
With access from four bridges, cyclists, joggers and walkers can enjoy a complete three-mile loop that offers unparalleled views of downtown Portland as well as a unique perspective on the river. Open year-round. Free.
