Start the weekend with a Saturday morning walk in downtown Salem! Meet in the parking lot behind the First Christian Church (685 Marion St. NE). The group generally goes across the Union St. pedestrian bridge and through Riverfront Park before returning to the church by 9:30 a.m.--a distance of about 2.5 miles. Other options include Bush's Pasture Park, the State Capitol, the Saturday farmers' market, and Wallace Marine Park. If it's raining, the group can choose to stay indoors and stroll the elevated walkways in the Salem Center mall.
