Kaiser Permanente is prescribing a bike ride to THRIVE this summer. Bike, walk, or run at this month’s Sunday Parkways, presented by Kaiser Permanente.

Sunday Parkways takes place in nearly a dozen neighborhoods across Portland. On the given day for each event, the city closes a route of selected streets to auto traffic between 11 am and 4 pm. This gives you and your family a chance to walk, ride, or roll down the street safely while getting to know your city better.

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.
