The Walkable Washington program grew out of the Feet First Cities Program. It showcases exceptional pedestrian-oriented improvements, community groups and outreach programs; maintains a statewide network for key contacts and stakeholders including an annual symposium; and provides assistance with Safe Routes to School, walking audits and other educational activities and programs.
The first Walkable Washington Symposium will be held on Thursday, April 3, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm; in preparation for that event we will be highlighting projects around Washington which have enhanced walkability.
San Juan Island Trails Committee “Know Your Island” Walks
Since 2010, the San Juan Island “Know Your Island” Walk series has helped residents of the island to explore their history, parks, trails and public infrastructure. Each walk lasts approximately 2-3 hours and features a guest leader from the community who talks about the history, character and environment of the featured location. The walks are free to attend and open to all ages and abilities. The walks provide not only opportunities to exercise and to experience the beauty of San Juan, but also to create long-lasting and vital connections between members of the San Juan Island community.
