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 to miss if you are approaching from the east. Click here for a google map

“West Stark Street” is really just a dead end with a gravel road leading off to your right, and our driveway leading down to your left. Once you turn off Barnes Rd on to W Stark St, turn left down our driveway. If the parking lot is full, turn right and park on the north side of the gravel road. We share our building with Badger Tree Service.

From the east on Hwy 26: From Hwy 26, take the Cedar Hills Blvd exit (#68). Turn right onto SW Cedar Hills Blvd, go one block, and then use left two lanes to turn left onto NW 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 (W Stark St/dead-end), then make an immediate left down the driveway to the building.

From the west on Hwy 26: From Hwy 26, take the Cedar Hills Blvd exit (#68). Turn left onto Cedar Hills Blvd, go 0.2 miles and use left two lanes to turn left onto NW 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 (W Stark St/dead-end), then make an immediate left down the driveway to the building.

From the west on Barnes Road: Keep an eye out for Market of Choice. At the intersection in front of Market of Choice/Timberland Shopping Center (NW 118th/W Stark St), turn right (W Stark St/dead-end), then make an immediate left down the driveway to the building.

Parking: There are 17 parking spaces, and if needed you can park along the south side of the driveway (the side away from Barnes Road), or along the gravel road to your right as you turn off 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!
