Portland SmartTrips is pleased to kick off our 9th season of Senior Strolls with our first walk on Tuesday, May 14th. The Senior Strolls program was awarded a Building Healthy Communities for Active Aging Award in 2008.
For 2013, Portland SmartTrip’s Senior Strolls program offers 42 leisurely walks designed to inspire independence and good health. Senior Strolls are held on both Tuesday and Wednesday mornings beginning at 10am, from May 14 through October 2.
The Tuesday strolls were added two years ago due to high demand, and are designed to be a bit shorter than the Wednesday walks for those who want to reap the benefits of walking but don’t want to go too far. All of the walks are FREE!
Senior Strolls showcase great Portland neighborhoods and will focus on the downtown and inner eastside this year. The South Waterfront stroll will kick off the season. Participants will see the latest changes happening along SW Moody Ave. in this exciting new district, strolling under the Ross Island and Marquam Bridges. The Tuesday, May 14 walk will be 1.3 miles in length, and the Wednesday, May 15 walk will be a repeat on the same theme, though slightly longer, walk of 2.3 miles. All strolls begin and end along TriMet routes for easy access to and from all the walks.
