THIS WAS A POPULAR CONNECT GROUP AND THUS UNFORTUNATELY NEEDED TO CLOSE REGISTRATION DUE TO THE NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS
Join us for one or more leisurely walks through some great Portland neighborhoods as we learn about the social history, architecture and geology of the area. Bring a picnic lunch or opt to eat out after.
When you sign up you will get a confirmation email with info about where to meet for the first walk and then more details will follow about the other walks in reminder emails as we get closer to those dates.
All walks are will start at 10:00 am and end at approximately 1:00 pm.
July 7 – Multnomah Village, 3 miles | This family-friendly walk will take us through Gabriel Park. We'll also traverse some back streets and the main street of the village, including a stop at the Multnomah Arts Center.
July 14 – Mt. Tabor, 4.25 miles | We'll wind our way through the neighborhoods before ascending the flanks of Mt. Tabor. At the top, we'll admire the beautiful viewpoint, test the acoustics in the volcanic amphitheater and maybe even try out the swings! Our return trip down the other side of the park will make this a total 4.25-mile walk.
July 21 – Arlington Heights/Washington Park, 3.5 miles | We'll admire some eclectic architecture and beautiful homes in Arlington Heights before spending the majority of our walk in the lower part of Washington Park viewing the Rose Garden, Children's Playground, Elephant House, reservoirs and the Holocaust Memorial.
Be prepared for stairs!
