Be an Intersection Superhero!

You make Sunday Parkways possible!


Portland Sunday Parkways opens streets to all people – walkers, bicyclists, runners, skaters, seniors, adults and children – to enjoy a day of healthy physical activities.  In order to open streets to participants and to help neighbors living on the route, we need over 175 Intersection Superheroes for each event.

Signing up as an Intersection Superhero is the #1 way to support Sunday Parkways.  

Assist Sunday Parkways Neighbors

  • The most important job at Sunday Parkways.  Help the neighbors who live directly on the route. We are closing their streets and packing them with thousands of people.  You will help them in and out of their houses if they have to drive.  You will need to be helpful and friendly.

Support Participants on Route

  • Guide Sunday Parkways participants as they come down the route by standing back, smiling, and waving as people pass by.  Answer questions and help them find parks and activities.

Have Fun

  • Enjoy the throngs of people that will be passing by - smile, wave, cheer them on.

Each volunteer shift is under 3.5 hours.  All volunteers will receive a full training and support throughout the event.  Volunteers get an official Sunday Parkways t-shirt, water and snacks.
