Older Adults West Boulder Neighborhood Walk

 09/28/2023  |  09:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Boulder Walks - Seniors

Come join Kate and Jane in an exciting, new walking program for older adults centered around healthy movement and connecting with one another. Flagstaff and Mount Sanitas are our mountain backdrop as we share quality walking moments with others. TYPE: Monthly walk PACE: Gentle ~2 mph TERRAIN: Sidewalks/short hill DISTANCE: 1.7 miles, one hour We will offer recurring monthly walks along city streets and urban paths, with even some trails as eventual possibilities. You, the walking community, can help provide ideas for preferred types and durations of walks in Boulder. We will move at your pace. All physical circumstances and limitations are welcome. There will be some elevation gain – this is Boulder after all! We will guide and protect, but all participants are responsible for their own safety. Walk Description: One-hour conversational walk observing houses, flowers, landscaping, shops, and neighborhoods. Beginning at Spruce Confections on Pearl Street, the walk will head west and then up 5th Street to Spruce, east to 9th Street, and then south over Boulder Creek. We will cut across Marine Street and return to Spruce Confections on 6th Street. You can view a map of the route here: Schedule and transit: We will meet at 9:00 a.m. outside Spruce Confections at 767 Pearl Street. You can get a drink or healthy snack and use the restroom, if needed. The area is easily accessible by free transit (during July and August) – either direction of the HOP route stops a couple blocks away. · We will begin walking at 9:05, so please arrive on time. · Be sure to bring water and sun protection. Check the forecast and wear appropriate clothing. · Well-behaved and well-socialized dogs on 6' or shorter leashes are welcome. Boulder Walks is a city program that provides opportunities for neighbors to connect with each other and with local places. The program provides community members an active way to engage in pedestrian planning activities. Share an interest in walking, connecting with neighbors, learning about the community, and promoting health and well-being by walking with a Walk Leader today. Questions? Contact us!
