About your host

Let's explore Beverly Cleary's old neighborhood and the places that inspired her books on this family-friendly walk! If you loved Ramona as much as I did, you will love seeing all the places that inspired Beverly Cleary! Ramona's neighborhood was the first one I lived in when I moved to Portland eight years ago.

What we’ll do

We'll be taking a walking tour of places in Beverly Cleary's old neighborhood and the places that inspired the events in her beloved children's book series. We'll also be making a stop at the Sculpture Garden to see the statues of Ramona, Henry and Ribsy, we'll pass her childhood homes and, of course, make a stop at Klickitat Street. The entire walk is about 2 miles long with some gentle hills.
