Ki-a-Kuts Pedestrian Bridge

We just got home from a new adventure. We have lived in this city for 18 years and today we explored areas we never knew existed. With Matt as our guide, we walked across the new pedestrian bridge -- it opened June 23rd -- found Durham Park (new to me), and then over to Cook Park. What a beautiful area they have created there ... a butterfly garden, soccer and baseball fields, nice restrooms and covered picnic area. An added bonus -- we crossed paths with the Moores and had a nice visit. It was a pleasant evening for exploring and felt good to walk after our Mongolian Grill lunch with Matt.
This 223-acre area has been a long awaited project connecting our 3 communities. Now you don't have to go far to enjoy a great hike or bike ride.

Jerry and I had walked from the Tualatin side a few weeks ago, but the path on to Cook's Park was not open yet. We really enjoyed it and now look forward to the whole route...thanks for sharing!

I am so glad you liked it. It is one of our favorite bike rides as well as walks. maybe we can meet halfway again some time!

Isn't it a great addition to our cities? We walked to the bridge before it was officially open, then we've biked it since. What a great path!
