Default Gresham / Portland Oregon Outdoor 1/8th scale

Looking for a track or good field that would work for bashing & racing that is a legal place to run. My kid and I have been driving our 8IGHT T's at his old middle school (Gordon Russell) but there are no dirt hills or jumps really to speak of and we can't build any because we don't want to deface school property and get in trouble. The weather is supposed to be pretty good the next few days and would like to get some driving in. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I lived in Gresham for a while and i started to build a track at the old hobby store on Glisan & 182st NW corner behind a Jiffy Lube. The hobby shop had closed but there is still is a 100x 50 foot dirt lot where they used to have races. Never had any issues with people, even had some cops stop to watch me drive, they where cool because i was cleaning up the area of all the trash and wine bottles.
