Join in this annual traffic-free event put on by the City of Portland that brings people out to enjoy their neighborhoods and discover new ones. Ride your bike, walk, or dance and sing your way along the route! The Sunday Parkways courses open up between six to nine miles of city streets to the public once a month on Sunday, from May to October. The routes connect to a series of activity hubs with marketplaces that are usually stationed at parks. At these marketplaces find food, music, dancing, good conversation, city resources and more.
This month, the route is right here in our neighborhood, so join in the fun. The eight mile course is open on Sunday, July 24, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. This event will showcase the Northeast Neighborhood Greenways. While you make your way around the Northeast Portland route, stop by Woodlawn, Alberta, and Fernhill Parks where a collection of fun activities, festive music, and delicious food will be available. Look for the Concordia Neighborhood Association booth at Fernhill Park on the NE 37th Avenue side, too. They’ll have games for kids and association information.
This year, NE Sunday Parkways will return to Khunamokwst Park, at which there will be a Bi-lingual Bike Fair held in collaboration with the Andando en Bicicletas en Cully (ABC) Group.
Sunday Parkways provides a full day of play for anyone of any age. To get the most out of the day, stop by one of the Sunday Parkway hubs and pick up a Sunday Parkways brochure highlighting the hotbeds of activity along the route. Also find information on live performances and theatrical acts. During the event, visit Sunday Parkways on Facebook or Northeast Sunday Parkways JULY 24 Twitter for event insight into what’s going on throughout the day.
Don’t forget to eat and shop locally at the event! Sunday Parkways offers a chance to see and buy a range of products that Portland offers. Stop by the Sunday Parkways marketplaces located at each park. For more information visit www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/58929.
