5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
This walk is named "Fountains, Bubblers, and More". The 5 km. route includes some of Portland's best fountains as well as interesting areas of downtown. The 10 km. route continues to the Saturday Market, the Farmer's Market, and the Art in the Pearl Festival.
Carpools will leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 7 a.m. and return there about 3 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $10 to help with car expenses. After the walk, the carpoolers will probably pick a restaurant in Portland or Salem to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Portland on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 9:15 a.m. at the start point in the foyer of Building 2, Good Samaritan Hospital at 1040 NW 22nd Avenue (corner of Marshall and NW 22nd, across from the main hospital building). Or, they may do the walk on their own, starting from Building 2 anytime between 8 a.m. and noon.
