Downtown Civic Spaces Tour
On this walk, we’ll explore several of Portland’s most important public and civic buildings dating from the middle of the 19th century to the early 21st century. We’ll have a chance to view these city icons from the outside AND inside and enjoy some great views of downtown. Included on the tour list:
- Pioneer Courthouse
- Portland City Hall
- Wyatt/Green Federal Building
- Mark Hatfield Federal Courthouse
Take note: We will have to pass through security in several of these buildings and will be screened by metal detectors. Bring a photo ID!
This is an easy urban walk that covers less than 1 mile, but does involve ascending some stairs.
We’ll meet in front of the courthouse at the SW 6th Ave entrance.
Although much of the tour will be indoors, do dress for the weather!
Cost for this narrated tour is $15. You may pay with cash, check or credit card. You may also use PayPal by following this link: http://bit.ly/22q0waD
