Explore a New Park #25: Colonel Summers Park, Portland Oregon

Introduction

Again, on a Friday night after work, when we had no plan, why not watch a free movie and eat popcorn with other people in a park. This is a very friendly and safe place to hang around thanks to the City of Portland. On this day (7/12), they had this Movies in the Park event at Colonel Summers Park in East downtown Portland.

How to get there?

It takes about 8 mins drive from downtown Portland. The traffic towards a bridge across Willamette River can get heavy depending on time of a day.
