Choose Your Own Portland Adventure – Sunday Parkways Style
Staying engaged from home is easy with a full line-up of fun & FREE online programming!
Join us for fan favorites from last year, including: DJ Prashant, Andy Red Yarn, Trainer Tyra, amazing new classes, and a variety of disability-and equity-focused programs .
Sunday Parkways will also expand its how to walk, ride and roll virtual programming series to help Portlanders learn more about transportation topics like bike repair, pedestrian safety, and painted intersections.
Finally, Sunday Parkways will round out this year's digital programming with a collection of videos developed in partnership with Portland Parks and Recreation, Community and Civic Life, and Portland Fire and Rescue.
Explore Portland, Find Stickers, Win Prizes!
For 2021, Kaiser Permanente and PBOT will bring back the popular Sticker Hunt, while adapting it for the current public health environment. Expanding the map, the Sticker Hunt will take participants on walking, biking or rolling tours all across the city.
Sharp-eyed sticker hunters will have the opportunity to win prizes along each featured route, a fun reward from Kaiser Permanente, end-of-season grand prizes, and swag from Sunday Parkways sponsors, including Metro, iQ Credit Union, AARP, NW Natural and the Bureau of Planning & Sustainability.
Walking and Biking Adventures
To encourage Portlanders to get out and get active in a safe, physically distanced way with their favorite COVID-19 crew, Sunday Parkways will also roll out a series of short neighborhood walk and bike maps that Portlanders can use to explore city neighborhoods.
These routes developed in partnership with the SmartTrips program will connect Portlanders to parks, local shopping districts, and neighborhood greenways, the city's specially designed bike- and walk-friendly streets. These Neighborhood Greenways will provide more than 100 miles of low-traffic streets called “Slow Streets,” marked by orange barrels and signs, so people have more space to enjoy a walk, bike ride or stroll safely.
Supporting Businesses and Adapting as the City Heals
To support the vendors and other organizations that normally participate in the event, the digital Sunday Parkways will showcase Portland businesses on a virtual platform.
As the public health situation unfolds over the next few months, Sunday Parkways will evolve with it.
PBOT is interested in hearing in hearing feedback from Portlanders. The Portland Sunday Parkways team can be reached at 503-823-7599 or by email at PortlandSundayParkways@portlandoregon.gov.
