Olmsted Parks Tour

The Architectural Heritage Center stages its first bicycle tour, a summer afternoon ride through Southeast Portland’s historic Olmsted landscapes, designed or influenced by America’s premier landscape architecture firm and their visionary 1903 Portland Parks Plan. Tour guides Steve Dotterrer and Richard Ross have worked for several decades as Portland region planners, historians, and preservationists. Maps will be provided; participants are advised to bring lots of water and a snack.  Purchase tickets at the AHC website.
