Recreation & Play

Why not work where you play and play where you work?

In the University District, after-hours entertainment can include riverside outdoor dining, kicking back with friends over a perfectly pulled coffee or beer, exploring West Main’s eclectic shops, or attending a world-class concert, lecture or basketball game.

This is a place where a lunch break can mean fly fishing for native redband trout, renting a paddleboard, cycling for miles along the river on car-free blacktop, or walking a wooded trail to the secret rendezvous of herons.
