Mark your calendars, Sunday, April 8th 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.

For more details and to see the full schedule of Shoreline Walks, see the webpage or contact Recreation Specialist Marianne Johnson at 206-801-2600.
