Saturday, November 8th marked the third annual Maywood Park 5K, an annual tradition that takes runners and walkers on a scenic autumn foot tour of every street in the city.
The turnout for this year’s event was great! We had 43 registered participants ranging in age from 11 to 77 years old. From first-timers to speed demons, runners and walkers enjoyed a (fortunately) clear, crisp day among Maywood’s colorful trees.

We also had a special visit from Molly the Trolley, the My Street Grocery mobile grocery store. Thanks to resident Kevin Atchley who organized the visit, and worked with community members at the finish line to gather feedback on the experience.
We also had record participation from the community for this year’s event. Volunteers from within the city set up, cleared and secured the race course, registered participants, directed runners and walkers, served refreshments, coordinated with community businesses for prizes and donations, and showed everyone what an amazing city this is! Big thanks to everyone who participated and volunteered – YOU made this event a huge success.
Thank you to our community sponsors:

My Street Grocery, in partnership with Whole Foods, is a mobile fresh food store focused on improving access to healthy foods. The pop up grocery store arrives weekly in various neighborhoods by trolley (Molly the trolley), which is stocked with foods targeted to the communities it serves.
The City of Maywood Park is excited to welcome Molly on Saturday, November 8th, at the finish line of the 3rd Annual Maywood Park 5K. Stop by, say hello, browse the selections (available at or below store prices!), and learn more about how My Street Grocery is promoting health and community. She’ll be parked on Maywood Place near Mason St.
Join your neighbors for a Howl-oween celebration of Maywood’s 4-legged residents this Sunday, October 26th. Gather near the cul-de-sac on Maywood Place at 1PM, rain or shine! Costumes (on humans and dogs) are encouraged, but not required.
The City of Maywood Park and the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office have received several calls and emails over the past few months reporting strangers going through their garbage and recycling bins on Wednesday nights or Thursday mornings.
A Maywood Park resident volunteered her time to create and print weather-proof stickers to warn that unauthorized collection from residential garbage and recycling bins is prohibited, The City of Maywood Park passed an ordinance (No. 2012-2) that makes it unlawful for any person, other than the owner or person authorized by law or the City Manager to collect refuse or recycling.
A group of volunteers will begin affixing the stickers to residents’ bins beginning this week. Distribution will begin at the north end of the city and take a handful of weeks to complete.
To celebrate its 40 year anniversary, the Oregon Community Fund (OCF) has awarded a $5,000 grant to each of the Oregon cities that had not yet received an OCF grant. The City of Maywood Park is one of those cities!
The city is inviting current residents to submit their ideas for projects to be funded with this grant. The chosen project will need to be funded in full by the $5,000 budget and require minimal ongoing maintenance. Most importantly, the funds must be used to directly benefit and improve the quality of life for Maywood Park citizens!
If you have an idea of how you would like to see the grant used, please plan to attend the Maywood Park City Council meeting on Monday, January 5, 2015 at 7PM to present your idea. Please be sure your project includes a budget detailing the cost of your proposed project.
We are excited to announce that registration is now open for the 3rd annual Maywood Park 5K!
This is the only race we know of where participants get to walk or run every single street in an entire city. Join us in exploring the quiet, tree-filled community of Maywood Park on Saturday, November 8th. The course begins at the base of Rocky Butte at NE 92nd & Skidmore St, crosses over I-205 on Prescott, and then winds through each street in the city of Maywood Park.
Walkers and runners of all ages are welcome! Cost is $15 for adults, and is free for high school students with valid ID.
Registration costs for this event are kept low to encourage community participation. Any proceeds from the race will be donated to the American Heart Association.
