Join Elders in Action for a Walktober event at the Japanese Garden on October 23rd
Elders in Action in partnership with the  Willamette Pedestrian Coalition (WPC) will be participating in Walktober a 3 week event to promote walking as a fun, healthy, ubiquitous activity in the Portland metro region. Everyone is a pedestrian at some point in the day, whether it is by walking, rolling, or strolling.  Our Walktober event will be at the Japanese Garden on October 23, 2012 at 11am.   For more details and to register for this walk please emailMark  or call 503-235-5474.
Proclaimed the most authentic Japanese garden outside of Japan, the Portland Japanese Garden is a 5.5-acre haven of tranquil beauty nestled in the scenic west hills of Portland, Oregon.  What better place to take a walk especially with the autumn foliage just kicking in.  It should be beautiful!  The walk will start out guided by volunteers from Elders in Action who are also guides at the Garden. The walk will occur rain or shine (of course, this is Oregon after all).  For more details click here.
