What is NeighborWalks?

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 take place in neighborhoods in and around Portland. Each walk is developed and led by AARP volunteer leaders with support from community partners. Walks are designed to be intergenerational and celebrate community for all ages and abilities!

For more information on planned 2024 walks, please click here.

NeighborWalks are designed with your safety, comfort and accessibility in mind. However, please note that the conditions on the ground may have changed from when each walk was originally developed. Also, walks do include crossing busy streets, and encountering traffic, lack of sidewalks or sidewalk disrepair, and potentially law enforcement—and all of the other challenges that Oregon Walks works to solve. If you are at all unsure about feeling welcome, or may need extra accommodation, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Be Active. Stay Active. Let’s put some miles on those walking shoes.
