Tigard Street Heritage Trail

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Tigard Street Heritage Trail is a 3/4-mile inactive rail corridor parallel to Tigard Street providing a safe, off-street biking, walking and skating commuter route. In summer 2015, the City laid down a temporary trail from Tiedeman Avenue to downtown and the Tigard Transit Center.

Design for a permanent trail started in 2017 with a series of public engagement opportunities called Walk and Talks. An Outdoor Museum with a railroad theme was chosen to commemorate the trail.

The Tigard Street Heritage Trail serves as a unique cultural resource in the City of Tigard. As a gateway into Tigard’s redeveloping downtown, the bike and pedestrian pathway will celebrate local heritage and the city’s identity as a “pedestrian boulevard.” As engineering work moves forward, the city will use the trail as a venue to showcase features and amenities that recognize local culture and identity. Grant funding will also support street lighting, supporting the trail’s design as a well-used corridor and that is safe and visually open.

Construction has begun on the Tigard Street Heritage Trail and Outdoor Museum.

Comparta su historia: una celebración de la cultura, ascendencia y la historia

Estamos buscando historias personales para El Museo Al Aire Libre de Tigard, una conmemoración de las muchas culturas que han ayudado a formar la historia de la región.

La ciudad ha recibido una subvención de la Fundación Nacional para las Artes para crear un museo al aire libre que incluirá historias de cultura y tres grandes obras de arte públicas. Las historias recopiladas de la comunidad se conmemorarán en esculturas de acero a lo largo del camino Tigard Street Heritage Trail el cual mide ¾ millas, y algunas podrían convertirse en la inspiración para las obras de arte.

Estamos buscando historias únicas de personas de diversas culturas, comunidades y experiencias.

Por favor comparta:

· Historias que destacan comunidades históricamente marginadas o menospreciadas.

· Historias que presentan relatos individuales o familiares.

· Consideración especial dada a las historias que se relacionan de alguna manera a los ferrocarriles. Los ejemplos podrían ser los inmigrantes que construyeron ferrocarriles, braceros u otros trabajadores migrantes que se trasladaron por ferrocarril, las comunidades que fueron desplazadas o enterradas por el ferrocarril, las familias que han migrado o vendieron productos por medio del ferrocarril, etc.
