Portland, Oregon audio tour: Portland Outdoor Sculpture Tour

About the Tour

Portland's downtown is dotted with outdoor sculptures. Some immense and famous, some hidden in plain sight. The outdoor sculptures of Portland exemplify Portland's unique character, charm, and history in a number of ways. Take a walk and discover Portland in a new and interesting way!

Tips

Places to stop along the way

Grab a bite at a food cart or duck into a local coffee shop to refuel.

Best time of day

Start a few minutes before 12pm for a nice surprise with our first sculpture. Otherwise, start anytime during the day when there is enough light - it gets dark as early as 4pm in the winter, and stays light until 9pm in the summer!

Precautions

Downtown Portland is a busy place on a weekday, but people are friendly. You may run into street musicians, homeless people, food carts, and more!

Comments

Would have enjoyed more detail on art noted and some info on those also along tour. Tour might need updating since some sculpture was under renovation. Duration was just right. GPS had trouble following me.
