Portage Creek Bicentennial Park

The “backbone” of the Portage park system, Portage Creek Bicentennial Park (PCBP) was the official city project to honor the nation’s 200th birthday. Spanning over 200 acres, PCBP is a linear facility that runs between the City Centre Area and the northern city limits at Kilgore Road, connected by a 3.5 mile multi-use trail. In total, PCBP has over 8 miles of hiking and biking trails with several opportunities to view scenic Portage Creek. 

Parking is available at the Lover’s Lane Trailhead, just south of Kilgore Road, at the main entrance on Milham Avenue just west of Lover’s Lane and at the Celery Flats Historical Area at Garden Lane.
