Oregon Walkways: Cully Camina

Thank you for joining us in the Cully neighborhood Sunday, September 18th, 11:00am – 4:00pm for the first year of Oregon Walkways! This community event promoted awareness for walking as a fun and healthy transportation option while highlighting place-making successes by Cully organizations and individuals.

¡Cully Camina encouraged participants to explore the Cully neighborhood on foot and use the streets for play, by closing off portions of NE Killingsworth St. and NE Alberta Ct. to cars and opening them up to people. The route highlighted the new Living Cully and 42nd Ave Plazas and KĘ°unamokwst Park with activities, music, food and art vendors, local nonprofit booths, and art installations.

All together we had 42 volunteers, 50 vendors, 6 activities, 2 music acts, 1 dance group, 1 fashion show, and over 1,000 pedestrians who came out to explore the Cully neighborhood with us!
