Sandy River's "Thousand Acres" Closed For Construction

"Thousand Acres", otherwise known as the Sandy River Delta, will be closed temporarily due to construction, according to the Gresham Outlook online. Construction of anew access road and larger parking lot means lots of heavy machinery. Not a good environment for dogs and their human companions! The site may be closed until June 26.

The Forest Service is in the process of making many needed improvements to the Sandy River Delta, located at the north end of the I-84 Sandy River Bridge. Some of the improvements include a new parking area, no-leash dog trails, wetland closure to dogs and horses, restoration of the original Sandy River channel, and riparian forest restoration. In addition, the Forest Service is also involved via the Confluence Project and a Maya Lin designed permanent art project in the Sandy River Delta (aka Thousand Acres).
