It is 6 miles, 700 feet up and 1000 feet down. Bring bus tickets or money for bus fare, $2.50 for adults under 65, $1.25 for seniors over 65.

We will meet behind the bleachers, near the food carts, at Wilson High School, (SW Sunset Blvd. and SW Capitol Highway) and be ready to depart at 9:00 am. Well behaved dogs are allowed on leash but they will have to either ride the bus as service dogs or you can have someone pick you up. For health reasons, there is no smoking on SW Trails walks.

Hannah Mason Pump Station - Dedication June 8th, 10AM

On Thursday, June 8, 2017, The Hannah Mason Pump Station located in the south end of Williamette Park will be dedicated at 10 AM. The event will feature remarks from elected officials and neighborhood representatives, site tours and refreshments.

The Hannah Mason Pump Station replaces the Fulton Pump Station to expand capacity for current and future water service needs. The station houses five pumps, public restrooms, and park equipment storage, and its subtle design and landscaping blend into the surrounding environment. In addition to the station there have been a number of upgrades to the park and the paths.

This event is ADA accessible and will be held within the pump station and a covered picnic area. Parking is available onsite at the main parking area, near the boat ramp. The pump station is also easily accessible for pedestrians from the neighborhood via SW Nevada Street.
