Keizer Year Round Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both easy.
The 5 km. walk features two parks and attractive neighborhoods. The 10 km. route features four parks in Keizer and one in Salem along the Willamette River; also attractive neighborhoods.
Carpools leave the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 8 a.m. and return there about 3 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant on the way back to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling on their own to Keizer should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 9:30 a.m. at the start point, the Safeway grocery store at 4990 River Road (corner of Chemawa Road) in Keizer. Directions to the Safeway store, along with further details of this walk, can be found by clicking on the "Other Oregon Events" bar at the top left of this page, then "Year Round Events" and scrolling down to "Keizer - Five Parks and a River".
