On June 25th, Historic Parkrose is putting on a 5K/10K run through the Parkrose area. A portion of the 10K route will come through Maywood Park. The goal for the event is 200 participants, and those running in the 10K will be passing through our fair city between about 9am and 10am. Please be aware of the event and exercise caution when exiting and entering the city during that time.

We are fortunate to have Lt. Joel Wendland, our public safety liaison from the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, attending the second city council meeting of each month (barring any emergencies). Each month, Lt. Wendland reports trends on public safety activity within the city.

Learn more by reviewing the March 2016 Activity Report, and by attending a city council meeting to meet Lt. Wendland.

Last Chance to Visit Molly this Thursday, May 19th

Posted on by


Thursday, May 19th will be My Street Grocery’s last stop in Maywood Park. During the year that Molly visited Maywood, she has had a few loyal followers who visited her each week. However, we just weren’t able to provide the consistent flow of business to continue with the weekly market. My Street Grocery is reconsidering nearby locations, and will keep the city informed if they set up in a surrounding area.

Please help us give Molly a proper send off by stopping by between 3-5pm this Thursday near Maywood Commons to say goodbye.

A HUGE thank you to residents Kevin Atchley and Lalena Dolby for bringing Molly the Trolley to Maywood. The weekly convenience and opportunity to commune with neighbors was a gift to the community!
