Portland Sunday Parkways — a Prescription to Thrive

Portland Sunday Parkways, presented by Kaiser Permanente, hits the streets of Portland each year from May to September to promote civic pride, support local businesses, and encourage people-powered modes of transportation. We invite you to thrive with us and with your Portland neighbors.


Sunday Parkways takes place in nearly a dozen neighborhoods across Portland. On the given day for each event, the city closes a route of selected streets to auto traffic. This gives you and your family a chance to walk, ride, or roll down the street safely while getting to know your city better.


This year, we’re bringing back the popular Kaiser Permanente Sticker Hunt. Collect all 4 stickers along the route to complete your Sticker Hunt map, and we’ll make a donation on your behalf to mental wellness organizations in the community.


Save the dates and join us for all 5 Portland Sunday Parkways rides. Each event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
