Station 21 Fire House Dock

Location: 05 SE Madison, adjacent to Audrey McCall Beach.

Access: Bike or walk along Eastbank Esplanade to Fire Station ramp down to dock. Free street parking available on SE Madison and adjacent streets. A paid lot is next to the Esplanade near the Fire Station.

Lowdown: Home to HAP’s River Hugger Swim Team, Portland’s ocial open water team, the dock has two ladders which makes it easy get in and out of the water.

HAP’s role: HAP advocated to have a storage cabinet installed on the dock for swimmers to safely store gear and valuables. Also, HAP proposed and paid for ladders that are now in use on the dock.

Safety: Because of the depth of water at this location it is only recommended for advanced swimmers.
