Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade

Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade Review

A stroll along this 1½-mile pedestrian and cycling path across from downtown is one of the best ways to experience the Willamette River and Portland's bridges close-up. Built in 2001, the esplanade runs along the east bank of the Willamette River between the Hawthorne and Steele bridges, and features a 1,200-foot walkway that floats atop the river, a boat dock, and public art. Pedestrian crossings on both bridges link the esplanade to Waterfront Park, making a 3-mile loop. Take MAX light rail to the Rose Quarter station.
