Ventura Park is part of the City of Portland’s Safe Routes to School program. The vision of this program is that all students and families can choose active transportation as a safe, convenient, accessible, and desirable option for getting to and from school and around their neighborhoods.
Don’t forget that HELMETS are required by law for children on bikes, skateboards and scooters. The Safety Store at Doernbecher Children’s hospital has helmets available for $10-14 (as well as many other safety-related items).
