With the growth of the Rainey Street District, the connection between the Trail and Rainey Street is becoming more vital for transportation and access to nature. This gateway to the Trail is an important entry point that we envision improving the ecological function, providing expanded recreational benefits, and increasing amenities for the neighborhood and Trail-users. Previous projects in this area include TTC’s addition of the  Miró Riveria Restroom in 2007, bringing a much-needed restroom to this stretch of the Trail, PARD and Public Works ADA enhancements to the bathroom, and an expansion of the Great Streets along Cummings St., complete with benches, sidewalk, and new shade trees.
The Trail Conservancy worked with dwg. landscape architects to develop the schematic design for this space. The next phase of the project is completing the detailed design and construction, with construction beginning in the Summer of 2023.
