|To one who sees only
inwardly "wild" means "savage"
...but to one who looks out and sees the rest of the world, "wild" means "free."

|An aerial view of Marquam
Gulch--a wilderness park in the middle of the city and just minutes from
downtown Portland (by car)
The Medical School (OHSU) ridge is on the left and Ravensview Ridge (Governor's Park) is on the right. At the mouth of Marquam Gulch lies Duniway Park with its large lilac garden, two running tracks and, just to the south, the YMCA fitness center.
Beyond all that lies Marquam
Nature Park a system of trails connecting residential streets on the ridge
tops and extending all the way to the top of the mountain at Council Crest
Park. Take a look at the map, then take
a walk or two in the wilds of Marquam Gulch.
|OHSU has a new Emergency
facility, one of the best equipped in the West. An easily reached
helipad is connected to the Emergency Department below by the fastest elevator
in Oregon. One of the longest pedestrian sky bridges in the world
connects the VA Hospital with OHSU South Hospital.
