Walking & rolling in Washington
Find out what you need to know about walking in Washington, including how to make your community more walkable and outdoor recreational opportunities for walkers.
All Washingtonians are pedestrians at one time or another - to get where you need to go, the car, the store, work, the park, school, etc.. In fact, many of the trips that people make every day are short enough to be accomplished by foot or wheelchair alone. Walking can improve personal and environmental health, reduce traffic congestion and enhance one's quality of life, among other things.
