The fifth season of Sundays on the Boulevard will end this Sunday, September 23. Baxter Boulevard, with one of the best views in Portland, has been an urban oasis on Sundays since May for bike riding, running, walking, skateboarding and other recreational activities. The road will be closed to cars for the final time this year on September 23 from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM, from Vannah Avenue to Payson Park.

In addition to the City, the effort is sponsored by the Back Cove Neighborhood Association, the Bicycle Coalition of Maine, the Portland Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee, Healthy Portland, and Portland Trails.
