Sunday Parkways celebrated its 15th anniversary with a return to in-person events in 2022!
After a two-year hiatus, Sunday Parkways returned for two in-person events during the 2022 summer season. The featured neighborhoods included Northeast Cully and East Portland with a total of 30,000 community members coming out to celebrate the 15th anniversary of this beloved Portland tradition.
In planning this years events our team considered neighborhoods that are historically underserved by Sunday Parkways. We chose East Portland and Northeast Cully neighborhoods to align with other programs happening in these communities, and to highlight new infrastructure for people biking, walking, and rolling.
Both events featured routes and parks that were new to Sunday Parkways history. Each of the parks had entertainment, food vendors, and organizations sharing information and resources. To provide programming for people across the city, we partnered with Kaiser Permanente to host the Kaiser Permanente Sticker Hunt--a citywide scavenger hunt. The scavenger hunt featured five different neighborhoods that participants could explore May through September.
We’re excited to share with you our 2022 Final Report below which outlines the objectives that guided us through this season and highlights the outcomes of this year’s Kaiser Permanente Sticker Hunt and events. We hope you take a moment to read about how this season went and the amazing partners, participants and volunteers who make these community events possible.
