Near a fence between driveways on SE 74th Avenue, near Powell Boulevard.
This one looks promising. Google's a little unclear if it is just over the fence line, or near to a paved area. In any event, it appears easily accessible, assuming there are not permission problems.

Oh boy, a walk-to hash. I am in-town watching the grandchildren and this is right in their SE hood.
I woke up at dawn and ran to the hashpoint. It was still pretty much twilight on Sunday morning, no one around except dog-walkers, so I just stone cold ran quietly up the driveway, waved my GPS arm over the fence to sweep the hashpoint, and continued on through the quiet streets.
This was I believe only my second geohash completed completely on foot, and the first completed entirely by running. Distance covered: 5.89 miles.
Kydlt and the grandchildren biked over. K. crashed once in the excitement. Spoke with the neighbor, & he said that the folks that owned the house wouldn't mind if I took a photo right there, as the hashpoint seems to be right at the fence-line. At Thing1's insistence we also did a geocache on the way home. Everyone had fun.
Jim headed to the hashpoint and got there pretty easily, as there was an easy route there. I asked at one house, but they said the fence didn't belong to them, that I should ask around the corner.
The folks around the corner were happy to let me take a picture, so I wandered up to the fence and did so.
On the way back to the car I noticed the markings on the sidewalk and took a picture.
