The final Sunday Parkways of the season is cancelled due to a severe weather forecast. High winds and heavy rain are anticipated for this Sunday, Sept. 29. The event was scheduled to take place in Southwest Portland from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. We are notifying sponsors, vendors and residents of the cancellation. The event is sponsored by the Portland Bureau of Transportation.
This was the last in a series of five Sunday Parkways events this year that take place in various neighborhoods and open the city’s largest public space – the streets – to walk, bike, roll and enjoy active transportation and entertainment. The first four Parkways events brought large crowds of Portlanders of all ages together to enjoy traffic-free streets for a day and to encourage active transportation year-round.
Sunday Parkways is organized by the Portland Bureau of Transportation with its many community partners, including presenting sponsor Kaiser Permanente, and champion sponsors Universal Cycles, and Portland Parks & Recreation, Metro, Bike Gallery, Clif Kid and the NW Health Foundation. The Jewish Federation of Greater Portland and Food Front were Southwest Portland event sponsors.
We look forward to seeing you in 2014!
