Walking Portland: SE Laurelhurst, Sunnyside, Richmond & Kerns
REGISTRATION: Opens 4 weeks prior to event. (Moving this fabulous walk forward and will continue to review conditions in this neighborhood--especially around the park--in coming months. Currently heavily encamped with reported violence.)
DESCRIPTION: This is the perfect spring walk--through four iconic SE neighborhoods: Laurelhurst, Sunnyside, Richmond, and Buckman. With optional connectors to three of Portland's coolest shopping/noshing streets: Belmont, Clinton, Division and Hawthorne. Plus Laurelhurst, Sewallcrest and Colonel Summers parks along the route. And if we get lucky, the ducklings will have hatched.
DISTANCE: 6-7 miles.
