Fanno Creek Trail
Future Potential AlignmentFanno Creek Trail Design Project
Fanno Creek Trail is a paved, multi-use pathway for walkers, runners, bicyclists and nature enthusiasts of all ages. The trail is being developed in segments, with current work on the sections from: 

  • Woodard Park to Grant Avenue
  • Main Street to Hall Boulevard
  • Tigard Public Library to Bonita Road
  • 85th Avenue to the Tualatin River

The future trail is proposed to gently wind through a beautiful oak savannah restoration project before reaching a meadow and continuing to the Tigard Public Library.

Open House Scheduled
Residents, neighbors and folks interested in planning for the future trail are invited to an open house Wed., March 7, 2018, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Tigard Public Library (13500 SW Hall Blvd.).

Fanno Creek Remeander Project

The City of Tigard will be partnering with Clean Water Services to restore Fanno Creek along two city-owned properties in Downtown Tigard.  Construction of the remeander is scheduled to begin in spring 2018.

View the project map and proposed features. If you have any questions, please contact Andrew Newbury at andrewn@tigard-or.gov or 503-718-2472.

This project will make creek and trail improvements, including:

  • Restoration of Fanno Creek closer to its historic location
  • Creation and improvement of floodplain wetlands
  • Replacement of the Ash Street pedestrian bridge at its current location
  • Installation of a new bridge over a drainage channel
  • Construction of a new pedestrian/bike trail to replace impacted sections
  • Addition of a trailhead at Ash Avenue
  • Establishment of native plant communities and plantings along the new trail edges

The project is planned to reduce erosion, increase water quality, allow better flood passage, and create a safety corridor for pedestrians.

Fanno Creek Regional Trail Overview

Fanno Creek Trail is a regional trail that extends 15 miles from Tualatin to Portland, passing through Tigard, Beaverton and unincorporated Washington County.

Fanno Creek Trail is a paved, multi-use pathway for walkers, runners, bicyclists and nature enthusiasts of all ages. The trail will be accessible to persons with disabilities. The trail is being developed in segments with approximately 60% of Tigard's sections complete, including the Fanno Creek Park segment that connects downtown Tigard with Tigard's City Hall and Library.

When completed, Fanno Creek Trail will connect neighborhoods, parks, schools community and senior centers, libraries and businesses. The trail is expected to become an amenity that significantly enhances the quality of life for Tigard's residents.

Fanno Creek Trail Segment
Woodard Park to Grant Avenue

The City of Tigard is in the final stages of clearing a future section of the Fanno Creek Trail located between Grant Avenue and Woodard Park. This work has included clearing non-native and invasive plant species to aid in identifying sensitive natural habitat and wetland areas.

The work to be performed will support future design efforts for a new segment of the Fanno Creek Trail from Grant Avenue to Woodard Park. Vegetation removal will allow for identification of sensitive natural habitat and wetland areas along the trail in order to protect them. This trail segment is expected to be constructed between 2018 and 2019.

Fanno Creek Trail Segment
Grant Avenue to Main Street

The City of Tigard has constructed a new segment of Fanno Creek Trail from Main Street in Downtown Tigard, through an existing underpass beneath Pacific Highway 99W, to Grant Avenue. This trail is a key part of the larger Fanno Creek Greenway Trail which extends from Portland to Tualatin.

Artist Ashley MontaguePublic art has been installed along the recently completed section of Fanno Creek Trail, just northwest of the downtown.  Aerosol artist Ashley Montague was commissioned by the city to cover a 100-foot by 4-foot concrete retaining wall with his own original design.

For hikers, bikers and skateboarders passing by, the mural appears to be in motion. The swirling black and white vortex echoes the pattern of the racing world's checkered flag. Ashley's strong, geometric designs are punctuated by colorful flowers and plants.

You can see for yourself by parking on Main Street at the trailhead. Go underneath Pacific Highway, then walk (or bike or skate) a few hundred feet further for an up-close look.

The new artwork was commissioned as part of the improvements to Fanno Creek Trail between Main Street and Grant Avenue.

Fanno Creek Trail Segment
Main Street to Hall Boulevard

In the heart of Tigard, this 30-plus-acre park consists of natural areas along a stretch of Fanno Creek. The park offers opportunities for trail-oriented recreation; it’s a place to take a quiet walk, enjoy a picnic, view wildlife, and let the hustle-bustle of urban life melt away.

Fanno Creek Park stretches from Main Street in Downtown Tigard to Hall Boulevard and to the Tigard Public Library. There are more than 10 entrances to the park including one through the breezeway at Tigard Civic Center.

The park is part of the Fanno Creek floodplain and mainly consists of grassy and wooded wetlands. Park improvements complement and enhance the natural environment which can be experienced from boardwalks, soft and hard trails, and bridges that transverse the creek. There is a gazebo in the field near the library for small, informal gatherings.

Mapping One's Way Gets Easier Downtown

Finding your way around Tigard’s trail network just got easier with the installation of a 5-by-6-foot sign at the crossroads of the Fanno Creek Trail and Main Street.

The sign was developed with support from the Dolan family and placed on a formerly blank monument on their property. The map provides all visitors an overview of the eastern half of Tigard, where residents can walk from downtown to Englewood Park on connecting trails, among several destinations.
 
In addition to helping residents find their way around, the sign includes information on downtown Tigard’s history and information on Tigard’s strategic plan to become the most walkable community in the Pacific Northwest where people of all ages and abilities enjoy healthy and interconnected lives.
