Long description

This walk begins in Ladd's Addition. The streets here are in a diagonal wagon wheel pattern, so follow driving directions carefully. This walk offers some of Portlands best city views and is a must-see for visitors. The paved route consists of a path along the Eastbank Esplanade on the east side of the Willamette River and through Waterfront Park on the west side. Two bridges (with pedestrian walkways shared with bicycles) make the connection across the river. On the weekends you will pass the Portland Saturday Market. The route leaves the river briefly to visit Pioneer Courthouse Square, an urban park affectionately known as Portland's Living Room. Palio opens at 8AM. Walk daylight hours
