Event Details

August 25, 2019 ~ 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.  (7 miles) 

We will return to the historic North Park Blocks, a green oasis downtown along with other engaging downtown and inner eastside gems for our August route. 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.
