Walk along SW 3rd Avenue and pass three Portland courthouse park squares that have an interesting history.
"The Plaza Blocks were lively places where orators held forth and citizens assembled. They are characterized in part by several large old elms and gingko trees. Chapman Square, originally designed for the exclusive use of women and children, features all female gingko trees. Lownsdale Square was to be the "gentlemen's gathering place."
At the corner of SW 3rd Avenue, turn left onto SW Salmon Street. Continue on SW Salmon Street to SW 6th Avenue, returning to the Hilton Portland Downtown.
This point of interest is part of the tour: Farmers Markets, South Park Blocks and Waterfront Park
