Sunday Parkway Rolls Through Sept. 24

It’s time to check those bicycle tires, lube that chain, fit your helmet and roll on out as the dual city Sunday Parkways returns on Sunday, Sept. 24, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 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.

Streets on the event route will be closed to motor vehicles. 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.

Friends of Tideman Johnson this fall

Howdy all Friends of Tideman Johnson, and Happy Labor Day!

I know this seems like an endless summer, but it really will be fall sometime (really!) and it’s not to soon to start thinking about Tideman Johnson restoration activities this fall.

We’ll meet on the first Saturday of the month, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., starting in October. Here’s the schedule (and I’ll send a reminder the week before we meet):

  • October 7
  • November 4
  • December 2

And, there’s always snacks, coffee, and camaraderie!

It’s hard to believe Friends of Tideman Johnson has been going strong for 10 years now. That’s right, in 2007 we got our first Community Watershed Stewardship grant, and started our long term relationships with Portland Parks & Recreation and the Johnson Creek Watershed Council. I’ve attached a few pics from our Fall 2007 restoration events – we really have transformed Tideman Johnson Park for the better!

I hope to see you all in October!
