On June 22nd from 8am to 2pm the City of Portland is organizing a Sunday Parkways event. Portland’s first SundayParkways will be a six-mile loop of traffic-free streets in North Portland. Residents can get out and be active right in their neighborhood! Walk, bike, run, stroll, meet neighbors and enjoy entertainment in the parks and along the route.
Residents along the route will be able to get to and from their homes with small barricades and volunteers helping to limit access to the route.
We want to hear your ideas for the kinds of fun and healthy activities you would like to see in the 4 parks and along the route. We also want your suggestions on making this event successful and enjoyable for all participants and neighbors.
How You Can Help:
Sign up at our website below. No need to register for the Open Houses – just show up from 5:30pm to 8pm.
Consider being a volunteer on your street or at the event. We will need several hundred volunteers.
Got an idea for an activity you would like to pull together with your friends for that day? Let us know about it.
Send us your comments, suggestions, and concerns too.
