Put on your walking shoes and get ready to explore downtown Tacoma on
foot through Downtown On the Go’s Walk Tacoma series. This year the series will be celebrating its 10-year anniversary with favorite walk events from the past nine years,
including the Walk Tacoma Kick-Off in Wright Park.
The kick-off on National Walking Day (Wednesday, April 3, 2019) from 12 -1 p.m. is in collaboration with the American Heart Association. The 1.5-mile walk will be led by historians Melissa McGinnis and Former Mayor Bill Baarsma, highlighting two of Tacoma’s gems: Wright Park and Stadium High School. The free walk, sponsored by Metro Parks Tacoma, will start and end at the lion sculptures at the south end of Wright Park. Registration and check-in will be open from 11:30a.m. – 12 p.m.
Participants can save time by registering online for the entire series at www.downtownonthego.org. The first 100 people to register online and check-in at the kick-off will receive a Walk Tacoma 10-year anniversary t-shirt, and the first 300 participants to check-in or register will receive a swag bag.
The Walk Tacoma series, sponsored by the Puyallup Watershed Initiative Active Transportation Community of Interest, is a six-event walking series held on the first Wednesday of the month, from April through August. All walks in the series include activities for children provided by the Children’s Museum of Tacoma, and, new the year, American Sign Language interpretation.
