Boulder Walks Program

 

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. 

Join us on an upcoming walk

Boulder Walks hosts walks in and around Boulder all year long. Check out the full calendar of events on the Boulder Walks Facebook page.

Background

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.

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!
