Sunday Parkways @ North Park Blocks
Aug 25 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
Portland’s Sunday Parkways began in 2008, closing streets to cars and opening them to bicycles. Sunday Parkways is an annual event series that’s offered on one Sunday a month from May through September. Perfect for riders of all skill levels, these community rides let cyclists take their time and roll through the neighborhoods that make up the heart of the city.
This Sunday the route is the Green Loop of Downtown and Central Inner Eastside and goes right by OJMCHE. Come visit the museum, which will be tabling in the North Park Blocks with the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland and Mittleman Jewish Community Center. Stop by and say hi! Find out more about Sunday Parkways here.
This route inspired by the Green Loop presents a bold new concept featured in the Central City 2035 Plan that envisions a linear park connecting nearly a dozen districts. This linear park will stop by countless cultural hot spots like the Portland Art Museum, North Blocks and the Rose Quarter. It’ll be a playground for all ages.
