A World Class City Deserves A World Class River Center
The Willamette River is experiencing a renaissance. Cleaner than ever and bustling with activity, the river is the centerpiece of Portland. Residents from neighborhoods throughout the Portland region are experiencing the river through educational and recreation activities. The time has come for Portland to build a showcase facility for its residents who long to access the river in canoes, kayaks, dragon boats and rowing shells in unprecedented numbers. A group of organizations, long committed to promoting access to and stewardship of the river, has come together to build such a facility.
