About this Event

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.
