Increase number of skate parks and other teen-oriented facilities at East Portland parks.

Action Item Number: 


Ed Benedict Community Park in Powellhurst-Gilbert has a unique and world class skate plaza.
Portland Parks & Recreation has given approval for Northwest Trail Alliance to construct a dirt "pump track" in Ventura Park, where bicyclists can hone their skills. There will be a small one for beginners, and a larger one for more experienced bicycle riders. It's being built on a "trial basis" and will be closely monitored for compatibility with other park activities. Construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2011.
