Protip: Our Water Event Station cools you off whether you drink OR wear the water!

We headed out to the Outer Northeast Sunday Parkways to refill water bottles and answer questions about your water. Thanks to our partners at the Portland Bureau of Transportation for organizing this super-fun family-friendly event!

Bonus event! 2018 Walk with Immigrants and Refugees

Walk with Immigrants and Refugees event

City employees from all bureaus—here we have Alexis (Portland Bureau of Transportation), Ashley (Water Bureau), and Asena (Commissioner Fish’s office) participated in the Walk with Refugees and Immigrants

Because we drink the same water, support the same businesses, and visit the same parks in our beautiful city.
