(September 21, 2015)  What do Sunday Parkways, salmon and the new Tilikum Crossing Bridge of the People have in common? They will all be on display and available for all to enjoy on Sunday, September 27th, from 11am-4pm. This new 8-mile Sunday Parkways route will include the Tilikum Crossing and circle the Sellwood area, introducing participants to the Westmoreland, Sellwood and Brooklyn School Parks where music, food and fun await.

Westmoreland Park will feature the 2nd annual Salmon Celebration to highlight the restoration of Crystal Springs Creek and the return of wild salmon to the city. There will be tours, a Native American blessing, music, games, crafts, inter-tribal cultural activities, samplings of Native American food, and more.

The Tilikum Crossing Bridge of the People is the largest car-free bridge in the United States and the latest addition to our cityscape here in Bridgetown. The Tilikum Crossing carries the Portland Streetcar, the MAX Orange Line, TriMet busses and cyclists and pedestrians, and officially opened to the public on September 12, 2015. 

Update:  Thanks to all 28,000 people who came out for the last Sunday Parkways of the year. Read all about the day and the year's record-breaking attendance by clicking here.
