Metro's parks and venues offer a variety of recreation opportunities during a spring break staycation, from hiking, to seeing a concert, to even helping finally organize your garage.

Partners envision a 22-mile route connecting Sherwood, Tualatin and Wilsonville
Someday, the Ice Age Tonquin Trail will take you from the banks of the Willamette River in Wilsonville, through Graham Oaks Nature Park and the Villebois neighborhood, past kolk ponds and large boulders left by historic floods – onward to Old Town Sherwood, the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge, and Tualatin’s Ki-a-Kuts bridge and Cook Park.
The Ice Age Tonquin Trail is taking one important step back in time – and another big step forward.
Recently renamed for floods that shaped the landscape thousands of years ago, the 22-mile trail now has an official blueprint. Partners along the route worked together on the master plan, bringing the trail closer to reality for cyclists, walkers and runners.
