WALK THIS WAY - Downtown Seattle on May 20, 2017 - completed and closed

Description: This urban nature walk takes us right through downtown Seattle. We'll start at Seattle's oldest park--Denny Park, walk on to the very urban Freeway park, head down to the Seattle waterfront, back up to Pike place, around through Belltown and finish in the newly developed area of South Lake Union. We think you'll love this super fun walk through the heart of the city.   

It's approximately a four mile loop walk. The terrain is asphalt with some stairs, so wear comfy walking shoes. Depending on our pace, allow two hours for the walk. 

Our intent for these walks is all about discovery and connection with nature in an urban setting. We want to show you how easy it is to incorporate nature into your everyday life. The exercise is an added perk!

Just so you know...these are interesting guided city walks, but not formally narrated walking tours. We explore right along with you.

Description: This gorgeous spring walk is full of oohs and ahhs. Blooming trees, budding flowers, and moss covered foliage surprise and delight every step.

The winding paths and gently sloped hills seem naturally wild. And contrastingly, some areas are more park like with wide paths that are flanked by grassy open areas.

Read the article Washington Park Arboretum from the Puget Sound Nature Series for more details.     

The approximate four mile walk is a mix of up and down pavement and it's a little muddy. Tennis shoes work great. Depending on our pace, allow two hours.
