Boulder Walks Program
Building a More Walkable Boulder
As a designated Gold-Level Walk Friendly Community, Boulder is a place where walking is both desirable and enjoyable. GO Boulder’s Boulder Walks program aims to celebrate and encourage walking as a travel choice for residents and employees. Why? Because walking not only supports whole-health outcome s, it also encourages a sense of connection to places and to people.
In partnership with Colorado-based Walk2Connect, Boulder Walks provides opportunities for neighbors to connect with one another and with where they live and gives community members an active way to engage in GO Boulder's pedestrian planning activities. By walking and working together, we invest in a more walkable city.
Walking for Transportation Walkabout with GO Boulder
Monday, March 18, 2019, 3 to 4:30 p.m., at Columbine Elementary School
Join us on this special walkabout with GO Boulder, led by Maria Guadalupe Martinez - a member of our community who exclusively walks, bikes and takes the bus with her four children (ranging in age from 4 to 16). Maria Guadalupe is an active transportation expert who will share her story of walking for transportation on her daily route from Columbine Elementary School to her neighborhood near the North Boulder Recreation Center. After the 1-mile walk, we will gather in the community room in Maria Guadalupe's neighborhood for more conversation and refreshments. Optional: Join Maria Guadalupe and friends at the final session of our winter 8-week Caminatas Fitness session with the City of Boulder's Open Space and Mountain Parks Department at Wonderland Lake at 12:30 pm.

GO Boulder’s Boulder Walks program was initiated in summer 2013 as a part of the 2012-2014 Transportation Master Plan (TMP) update. In 2013 and 2014, Boulder Walks consisted of a series of walkabouts and walk audits with Boulder community members in neighborhoods across the city. In 2015, the program expanded to a series of community-based walks and walk audits. Check out the photo gallery from the 2014 walkabouts!
