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.
