Russellville Park’s Adventure Squad Soars: From Skydiving to Ziplining

Russellville Park Ziplining

Alissa Sauer

At Russellville Park Senior Living in Portland, OR, we believe that age is just a number and joy is for the young at heart. Today’s older adults aren’t slowing down; they’re just getting started. Here, we encourage our residents to seize the day and take every adventure that comes their way. With two successful skydiving adventures under our belt, our brave residents decided to take their excitement to new heights – quite literally – with a ziplining expedition in the breathtaking Columbia River Gorge.

Ziplining Takes Retirement to New Heights

Russellville Park Resident ZipliningToday’s older adults aren’t closing a chapter, and they certainly aren’t slowing down. They’re constantly challenging stereotypes and finding creative ways to keep on rocking. At Russellville Park, they are doing that every day. On a sunny Friday, August 18th, our spirited group of residents embarked on a journey to Skamania Lodge Adventures. The lush, moss-covered firs of the rainforest canopy were their playground as they flew suspended by a cable through the canopy. The tour was nothing short of exhilarating, featuring seven different ziplines, with the longest one stretching over a remarkable 900 feet. It was an afternoon that pushed them out of their comfort zones and into a realm of pure fun and adventure.

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Aiden and Jada at Skamania Lodge Adventures for making this day so exciting and memorable. Their expertise and enthusiasm added an extra layer of joy to this unforgettable experience.

The adventure squad at Russellville Park is now buzzing with plans for their next escapade – white water rafting! Yes, our residents are not just enjoying life; they’re embracing it with open arms and open hearts.

Charlie Landis, one of our intrepid adventurers, summed up the experience perfectly, saying, “It was a ball!”
