Northeast Portland Sunday Parkways
The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
In 2023 Portland Sunday Parkways, presented by Kaiser Permanente, will celebrate its Sweet 16th. At these accessible, family-friendly events, streets on the route are closed to car traffic so that you can bike, walk, roll and play in Portland’s largest public space, its streets.
Sunday Parkways routes highlight Portland's network of neighborhood greenways and other new infrastructure, parks, and community resources. It’s crucial that everyone feel safe as they explore new ways of getting around, especially on streets that prioritize people walking and biking.
This year's route meanders along neighborhood greenways and crosses several business districts, notably Northeast 42nd and Alberta. The route rises significantly as one travels from North to South, so if it gets taxing, take a break and drink some water. And when you are dropping down those hills, make sure to monitor your speed – and check your brakes.
And remember, there is no starting or finishing point – you can hop on wherever you like.
