Mark your calendars, April 8 is the first walk as part of Shoreline Walks, a free community walking program to help Shoreline adults stay active, meet new people (or connect with old friends), and feel safer and more confident exploring our city by foot.

Walks explore neighborhoods, parks, and trails offering great insight into some of the best walking routes in our City. Specifically designed for adults ages 50+, but open to all ages and abilities, each walk is led by a Volunteer Walk Leader and all walks are free to the public.

Shoreline Walks is part of the City of Shoreline’s Healthy City initiative and is one of many efforts the city is making to support a healthy community.

More details and the full schedule of Shoreline Walks here or contact Recreation Specialist Marianne Johnson at 206-801-2600.

New on the website - the Walks Library has maps and detailed information for each past walk.
