This weekend, the first of five Sunday Parkways will take place in East Portland, where walking, biking, rolling or dancing along the route is encouraged!
East Sunday Parkways is Sunday, May 11, 2014, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. The seven mile route takes you on a tour of East Portland where you can stop by Glenwood, Bloomington, and Ed Benedict parks for food, vendors, music and more.
Sunday Parkways promotes healthy, active living through a series of free events opening the city's largest public space – its streets – to walk, bike, roll and discover active transportation. This event fosters civic pride, stimulates economic development, and shows off the community, business, and government investments that all contribute to Portland's vitality, livability and diversity.
Be Resourceful will have a booth at the event in Bloomington Park where you can learn more about resourceful living and share community resources. Where do you go to reuse, borrow, share, rent, and fix in your neighborhood? Are there places in East Portland you want others to know about?
Here are just a few of the many places in East Portland to Be Resourceful!
- Eastside Swap & Play
- Fabric Depot
- Finders Keepers Thriftshop
- Green Lents Community Tool Library
- Habitat for Humanity ReStore
- Montavilla Sewing Center

Celebrate Mother’s Day and join the fun at this family-friendly event this weekend!
