Project Background / Summary:
The City of Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation Department is proposing to develop approximately 1-2 miles of new natural-surface, singletrack trail for pedestrians and off-road cyclists at the Luscher Farm property.
The trails will be developed using best practices for sustainable singletrack, as developed by various federal land management agencies and trail advocacy organizations.
Approximately half of the trail development will occur on the Farr Property (TL# 3000), which is currently vacant and contains remnants of the single-family residence that was demolished. The remaining trails will be used to connect the Farr Property to the rest of the Luscher Farms public facilities, including a connection to the paved multi-use pathway that parallels Rosemont Road.
The Farr Property is proposed to be developed with ancillary support facilities including parking (approximately 15 stalls) and circulation, signs, a welcome kiosk, a porta-potty pad, and a shade structure. An existing approximately 2,000 SF structure will have a portion removed to reduce it’s size to approximately 1,200 SF, and is proposed to be used by the Parks and Recreation Department for storage.
