A New Beach

Written by Mike Turner on July 8, 2014

A tribute to the Willamette is one of many poems lining the path to Poet Beach just under the west end of the Marquam Bridge.


The beach has been provided by the Human Access Project for swimmers who now can safely use the river since the Big Pipe was built.


Expect more city beach access in the near future as the Portland waterfront evolves into a recreation center piece for the city.
