Event description


Your tour guide for this adventure is Tanya March, a St. Johns resident, who wants to travel with you by foot armed only with a booklet of historic images, a cell phone and a first aid kit. St. Johns is a neighborhood of Portland, Oregon, located in North Portland on the tip of the peninsula formed by the confluence of the Willamette River and the Columbia River. It started as a separate, incorporated city that is now widely know for it amazing bridge, Jazz Festival, annual parade, and historic main street. This walk has some steep grades so bring comfortable shoes and a water bottle. The tour starts at the community center built in 1942 as a community center for WWII defense housing and relocated to the current location.


What do you do if there is ice or snow?

It is not safe for us to operate tours on slippery streets. We will refund your tour costs.

What do you do if it is 100 degrees?
If there is a heat advisory, that means a period of hot temperature expected by the local/national weather service. This can create a situation where heat illnesses are possible and it is recommended to stay out of the sun. Slabtown Tours LLC will try to reschedule the tour for later in the day.
