Walking Tour

Walking Tours ask people to notice aspects of the park they normally overlook, then share ideas about how those places could be improved.

During a Walking Tour, participants look at a space with a designer's eye, taking in sights, sounds, and natural and man-made features that impact how the park feels.

Walking Tours can be done as self-guided experiences or facilitated by a group member.
