Location & Directions
Bright Way Zen Center is at 12020 SW Barnes Road, Portland OR 97225, more or less at the intersection of Barnes Rd and NW 118th Ave/W Stark St. We are kitty-corner from Market of Choice, a big grocery store that will be the most obvious landmark. We are a little ways down a hill, so we can be easy miss if you are approaching from the east. Click here for a google map
Once you turn off Barnes Rd on to W Stark St, you run immediately into a dead end. Turn left down our driveway. We share our building with Badger Tree Service, and the front of the building still says Farmers Insurance.
From the east: From Hwy 26, take the Cedar Hills Blvd exit (#68). Turn right onto SW Cedar Hills Blvd, go one block, and then turn left on SW Barnes Rd. Follow Barnes 0.5 miles to NW 118th/W Stark St (Market of Choice will be in front of you on your right). Turn left at the light onto W Stark St, then make another immediate left down the driveway to the building.
From the west: From Hwy 26, take the Murray Blvd exit (#67). Turn left onto NW Murray Blvd, go 0.4 miles and turn right onto NW Cornell Road. Go another 0.3 miles and turn right on NW Barnes Road. After 0.2 miles you will have to turn right to stay on Barnes Road. Go another 0.4 miles on Barnes Road to NW 118th/W Stark St (Market of Choice will be on your left at the intersection). Turn right at the light onto W Stark St, then make an immediate left down the driveway to the building.
Parking: There are 15+ parking spaces, and if needed you can park along the south side of the driveway (the side away from Barnes Road).
Once you arrive: just come in the front door, which can be accessed by stairs but also by a sidewalk that leads directly from the parking lot if you have any physical challenges. There will be a foyer where you can leave your coat, and we meet in the first room you come to. Leave your shoes in the hall. If you have any valuables, you can store them in one of the lockers in the first room to your right (keep the locker key with you while you’re here). Hope to see you!
