AARP Eye Center
Welcome to the 2021 NeighborWalks season! We are celebrating NeighborWalks 7th anniversary this year by featuring some of our most popular walks from the past seasons for your self-directed walking pleasure.
Because of COVID restrictions, this season we are not meeting in person (yet), but we remain committed to inspiring and helping you get your steps in and keep moving! Starting in May, every month we will feature a past walk for your enjoyment and provide you with tips to make your walking safe and enjoyable.
Please check back every month for “new” self-directed and self-paced walk routes and information on virtual event and activities.
NeighborWalks is a collaborative community walking program brought to you by AARP Oregon, City of Portland Bureau of Transportation and Oregon Walks. Our vision is to get more people walking every day for health, transportation, environment, and community. Walks explore neighborhoods in and around Portland metro. Each walk is developed by AARP volunteer leaders with support from community partners. Join us for these intergenerational walks as we celebrate a community for all ages and abilities!
First introduced as the 2017 season kickoff walk, the Overlook Park NeighborWalk takes you through a lovely North Portland neighborhood, along the overlook with view of the Willamette River, by the Overlook House, a historic Portland home, and more.
