Dear PRG family,
Well we finally broke ground! It has been a trying four years since I worked with the Portland Development Commission and conducted a feasibility study on how best to develop the remainder of the property that the rock gym sits on, but we finally did it! Yes, there have been other gyms built in the metro area since the Fall of 2010, and it has been a difficult economy to grow in, but the wall expansion done in 2012 laid the foundation of growth we needed for this expansion. With your amazing support, 2014 was our best year ever, and we succeeded in securing the bank loans necessary for this expansion.
There are many of you that have stuck with the Portland Rock Gym for most of its 26 years and many, many more that have been there in support for at least a few years, and this is your moment! To you, I say thank you for not giving up on your local gym and community. Without you, the expansion would not be possible. I would also like to say thank you to my family for their support and to the invaluable PRG staff who are the backbone of this business and the best people I know.
As for the expansion, here is a peak at what is to come! Remember, this is an animation and a few things will be tweaked here and there. There will be more bathrooms, conference/party room, offices, laundry room, hold washing room, and a covered bike area holding 35 stalls with a repair station and an additional 60 outdoor bike racks. Thanks to Eldorado Walls for the video.
