From Beth Ragel, City of Milwaukie:
You and your family are invited to ‘dig with dignitaries’ to celebrate the groundbreaking of Phase II of Milwaukie Riverfront Park as part of the First Friday festivities on June 6, 2014, at 4 p.m. near the Jefferson Street Boat Ramp.
There will be hard hats and shovels for the kids to help kick-off Phase II – a $2.2 million project that will construct a new boat ramp, a public lawn for festivals and gatherings, a riverside-path and other enhancements that will establish the park as a region-wide attraction. United States Congressman Kurt Schrader, Oregon State Representative Carolyn Tomei, and other dignitaries will be on hand to celebrate this exciting new chapter of Milwaukie’s history.
Linger in downtown afterwards and enjoy the Milwaukie First Friday event—food, entertainment, art and more!
