McKay, Miller’s Landing, and Columbia Parks River Access Project Update, Summer 2023


At the March 21, 2023 meeting, the BPRD Board of Directors provided direction to staff to continue moving forward toward preferred conceptual designs at each of the four access locations within McKay, Miller’s Landing and Columbia parks. Based on the board's guidance, extensive community and stakeholder feedback, and the opportunities and constraints of each location, a preferred conceptual design has been developed for each access point.


These preferred conceptual designs, along with a description of existing conditions at each location, can be viewed here.  For all previous project information, please visit the project website.


For the next step, staff will present the preferred conceptual designs, cost estimates, potential funding opportunities and construction outlook during the Business Session of the September 5th meeting of the BPRD Board of Directors.  This board meeting will be in-person at the BPRD district office, at 799 SW Columbia Street, beginning at 5:30 PM PST, with a Zoom link option for those who wish to participate virtually.
