From the City of Shoreline

After taking a year off, we are excited to share that we are starting back up the Shoreline Walks free community walking program. We have a variety of walks planned for 2021, with the first one taking place on Saturday, April 3 at 10:00am. Walkers will meet at Echo Lake Park and explore the surrounding neighborhood. (More details below)

Shoreline Walks is a free community walking program helping 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. No need to sign up, just show up at the meetup location and join the group on a walk. Friendly leashed dogs are welcome to join.

For the safety of all volunteers and participants, Shoreline walks will follow the current Washington State Covid-19 guidelines. Currently, all volunteers and walkers are required to wear face masks and practice social distancing.

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