This Fall Neighbors Go to WAR!

That is, the Walk Around Roseway. on Saturday, Sept. 16 at 10AM,  Come on out to trace the perimeter of our neighborhood, participate in a visual scavenger hunt, then play on at Wellington Park.

At just a few miles, the route provides a chance to get some exercise and fresh air, meet fellow residents, and revel in our unique neighborhood.

Roughly following the neighborhood’s boundaries, the route begins  at Wellington Park, Northeast 68th Avenue and Skidmore Street, and heads east before turning south on 79th Avenue for an optional rest at the Gregory Heights branch of the Multnomah County Library (open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays).

From the library, cross Sandy then head east again on Failing Street, and south on 81st Avenue. It’s a straight shot from there to Siskiyou Street, where we’ll then turn south on 77th Place, and take another jog on Alameda (going west now) to 77th Avenue, ending up on Sacramento for a long stretch bordered by the wide-open greenery of Rose City Golf Course to the south. From there, head north on 67th Avenue, crossing Sandy (with its many opportunities for rest stops and refreshments), and go west on Beech Street, until turning north again on 63rd Avenue.

At Skidmore Street, head east again and it’s back to Wellington Park. It’s a leisurely hour and half if stopping to take pictures or chat, or it can be done much faster as a workout. Bring a friend and make an outing of it. Participants will see their neighborhood in a whole new way and at eye level, receiving a rough overview of Roseway’s 535 acres housing 6,323 residents (per U.S. Census Bureau 2010 data).

The route features charming architecture, eye-popping colors on buildings and plants, garden inspiration, and other evidence of the creativity and skills of Roseway denizens. Check the images shown here and look for them on the visual scavenger hunt, whether it’s a concrete cat, a tree house to end all tree houses, handsome brickwork, a miniature barn, or shrubs shaped into perfect orbs.

Neighbors living along or near the route are particularly encouraged to stage garage sales, set up lemonade stands, take the walk themselves, or simply cheer on those who do.

See you at WAR on Sept. 16!
