Watercraft Launch Gets Redeveloped
The Tualatin River's calm flow makes it one of Oregon's most family friendly rivers and Rood Bridge Park provides the only access to this river in Hillsboro; however, the existing launch area is steep and hard to access. The watercraft launch area will be redeveloped so it is a consistent grade and slope compliant with Oregon Marine Board Guidelines and current engineering standards. The new watercraft launch will include installation of a seasonal floating dock that will further facilitate access for those of varying abilities. The improved ramp will also facilitate easy access for emergency responders.
The access will be closed for the kayaking season starting on July 17, 2017.
