Sunday Parkway Rolls Into Ardenwald Oct. 2nd


It’s time to check those bicycle tires, lube that chain, fit your helmet and roll on out to the first-ever dual city Sunday Parkways on Oct. 2nd! Both Portland and Milwaukie are sharing the family-friendly 8.5-mile Sunday Parkways route touring through Sellwood-Moreland and several Milwaukie neighborhoods.

The route includes a tour of the Ardenwald-Johnson Creek neighborhood along SE 29th Ave. and SE Olsen St., and four event stops, including one stop at Water Tower Park at the corner of SE Harvey St. and SE 40th Ave. (Phase 1 of the tower repair is expected to be completed by Sep. 30 and the park reopening Oct. 1.)

Streets will be closed to motor vehicles on the event route. City of Milwaukie ensures local residents on the route (including the dead-ends west of 29th Ave.) will have access.

City of Milwaukie is seeking volunteers to help out with the event. For more information, to view the route map, to volunteer, or to contact for questions, please visit the City of Milwaukie’s Sunday Parkways page.

You may have seen many yellow 11-inch by 17-inch flyers posted to bridges, bollards, benches, and telephone poles along the Springwater Corridor Trail recently. These flyers are eviction notices for illegal campsites along the Springwater Trail right-of-way. The notice states that illegal camps will be cleared beginning September 1, 2016. It also states that any personal property left behind may be reclaimed at a storage facility for a duration of time before it is disposed. The notice applies to areas along the Springwater Trail Corridor, including the segment through Ardenwald neighborhood and Tideman Johnson Park.
