(August 21, 2015) AARP Oregon and other community partners introduce a new program called NeighborWalks, and the inaugural walk takes place on Tuesday, August 25.
NeighborWalks is a collaborative community walking program brought to you by AARP Oregon (formerly called American Association of Retired Persons), City of Portland Bureau of Transportation and Oregon Walks. The vision of NeighborWalks is to get more people walking every day for health, transportation, environment, and community.
Walks will take place in neighborhoods all around Portland, led by AARP volunteer leaders with support from community partners. Join these intergenerational strolls and celebrate a community for all ages and abilities. As a bonus, participants who attend all the walks can collect stamps to win membership in Oregon Walks and a surprise giveaway.
The series kicks off on Tuesday, August 25 at 10am. Meet in front of Applebee’s Restaurant at 1439 Halsey St in the Lloyd District and explore Irvington’s architectural history and sites from the National Register of Historic places.
