It is the Portland way to celebrate Mother’s Day – taking mom to the Sunday Parkways event in East Portland.
This is from the Portland Bureau of Transportation:
Families and neighbors are preparing to enjoy Mother’s Day at the City of Portland Sunday Parkways presented by Kaiser Permanente this Sunday, May 11 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The East Portland route features a seven-mile loop of traffic-free streets that connects a variety of parks, including the popular Springwater Corridor trail.
The free event is the first of five Portland Sunday Parkways to be held monthly through September in different neighborhoods throughout the city.
With the largest concentration of children in the city, East Portland was chosen to kick off the Sunday Parkways season on Mother’s Day, May 11.
“As a mom of four, I can say that Sunday Parkways is one of the best family events in Portland and a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day,” said PBOT Director Leah Treat. “This first of the season Sunday Parkways highlights the neighborhood greenways in East Portland that help people experience our streets in a safe and healthy way this Sunday and every day.”
