This is a fun street to walk down. The statues are located between SE 36th and SE 11th Streets along SE Division. The sidewalk is lined with bioswales at many of the curbs providing a way to capture stormwater. It also provides a bit of nature in an urban setting. Lined with interesting shops and restaurants it is definitely a street to visit if you come to Portland OR.
This looks promising for women who enjoy walking and running solo.
