Last Two Portland Sunday Parkways – Mark Your Calendars!

  1. Updates

We have had a great year partnering with Kaiser Permanente and Oregon Children’s Theater for Portland Sunday Parkways. We’ve played with hundreds of kids, grown ups and even a dog or two, over the past three months, teaching fun and inclusive recess games in all kinds of weather. Regardless of sunny skies or drizzle, we are definitely keeping Portland playful. Some favorites have been our own NW version of Giants, Wizards, Elves; Bear, Salmon, Mosquito (pictured below).

Kaiser “Thrive Coaches” learning Bear, Salmon, Mosquito

Sprout Ball, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish  and of course Kickball.

We are looking forward to the last two Portland Sundays Parkways of the season on August 28th at Colonel Summers Park and September 25th (park TBD in NE Portland). If you missed the other events be sure to hop on your bikes, walk or run and join us for lots of fun, great games and celebrating our community together!
