As someone who has worked for Portland Parks & Recreation building trails, and now working with the Mazamas, access to the trail systems and outdoor spaces for all people is incredibly important to me. Especially from a trail construction/planning side, access is often overlooked

Can you share a little more about how to integrate programming into spaces that are built with an accessibility lens? I've learned from some of these great panelists that the idea of "you build it and they will come" concept doesn't really work.
Rod Wojtanik (he/him) - Metro P&N

Re: transitions between trail types that Georgena mentioned - consider building transitions that angle down from a full depth concrete walk to a reduced depth (3" over 18" length) at the edge. This allows for other materials (gravel, native mineral soils, etc) to migrate back and forth and avoid an abrupt transition between materials
