Play the Sticker Hunt This Weekend + Win Prizes All Summer! (Photo) - 07/23/21

PORTLAND, Ore. (July 23, 2021): Summer is in full swing, and Portland families and friends looking for fun can now play the Kaiser Permanente and Sunday Parkways Sticker Hunt any day of the week. Scan the QR code to have a map kit sent directly to your house, find the stickers on our self-guided Sunday Parkways routes, and text keywords to be entered to win prizes. Those who find all the stickers in the parks along the route can then take their map to Portland Nursery and collect a complimentary 4” herb plant for each route they complete.

Kaiser Permanente and The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) have created five scavenger-style routes that will take explorers across Portland to explore some favorite neighborhood greenways and parks. You can do these adventures any day or time you choose! So far we have launched Sticker Hunts in Southeast PortlandNorth Portland and East Portland. The Green Loop (downtown Portland) route will launch August 1. The Northeast Portland route will be revealed in September. 

Each route highlights Neighborhood Greenways and “Slow Streets," which provide more than 100 miles of low-traffic streets called “Slow Streets,” giving families more space to enjoy a walk, bike ride or stroll safely.

"As the Presenting Sponsor of Sunday Parkways for 14 years, we're thrilled about the way we've been able to reinvent the 2021 season for people of all ages to enjoy every day of the week," said Dr. Deborah Sailler, family medicine physician with Kaiser Permanente Northwest. "There is a strong link between physical activity and mental wellness, so encouraging people to walk, ride and bike the Neighborhood Greenways with friends and family is a great way for everyone to get out and get active, while also allowing us to improve the mental health and resilience of those in our community. And our online activities, like the healthy cooking & eating video we created, provide plenty of mental stimulation, fun and deliciousness right at home.”
