‘Sundays on the Boulevard’ Starts Again Sunday, May 7

sundaysonblvdCP

The fourth season of Sundays on the Boulevard will start this Sunday, May 7, 2017. Baxter Boulevard, with one of the best views in Portland, will once again be transformed into an urban oasis for bike riding, running, walking, skateboarding and other recreational activities. The road will be closed to cars on Sundays from May 7 through September 24, 9:00 AM – 4:00PM, from Vannah Avenue to Payson Park.


The program is part of a growing number of open street projects, in which streets are closed temporarily to auto traffic so that people may use them for walking, bicycling, dancing, playing and socializing. There are more than 100 documented initiatives across North America, according to the Open Streets Project.


In addition to the City, the effort is sponsored by the Back Cove Neighborhood Association, the Bicycle Coalition of Maine, the Portland Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee, Healthy Portland, and Portland Trails.


For more information, residents can call 207-808-5400  or visit www.boulevardsundays.com.
