AARP is sponsoring a NeighborhoodWalk
on October 13 that goes from Gabriel Park to Multnomah Village and back.
This walk will start at 10AM on Tuesday the 13th of October. There is parking at the Southwest Community Center, 6820 SW 45th in Portland. There are two overflow parking lots – one on SW 45th at Gabriel Park’s tennis courts and a second lot on SW Vermont at Gabriel Park’s picnic tables.
This is a leisurely walk for senior citizens. It is about two miles and is scheduled to take 2 hours. The route starts at the Southwest Community Center and goes through the park to Multnomah Village. The path through the park is not paved, but is hard packed gravel. The stretch between the park and Multnomah Village is on city streets without sidewalks, but these streets have very little traffic. Be advised that there is one crub and two steps to traverse and there is a block long fairly steep downhill stretch.
This walk will go on the first 8 stops on the SW Watershed Tour.
