Walk Tacoma series continues June 18 with public art tour

The fifth annual Walk Tacoma series continues this month with a walking tour highlighting Tacoma’s public art.

The approximately 1.5-mile walk, sponsored by TrueBlue, will begin at 5:15 p.m. on Weds., June 18, at Fireman’s Park, located at 801 A St., in downtown Tacoma. The walk will be led by Pacific Avenue Streetscape artist Elizabeth Conner. There is no need to pre-register for the event. The walking tour, which is scheduled to end at 6:30 p.m., will be followed by a social gathering of walkers at The Forum restaurant, located at 815 Pacific Ave., in downtown Tacoma.

Walk Tacoma 2014 is an eight-event walking series held on first and third Wednesdays, from April through August. The fun, themed walks encourage downtown employees and residents to exercise and enjoy the outdoors by discovering the different walking routes and parks in downtown Tacoma. The walks are scheduled at the lunch hour and just after work to encourage downtown employees to walk during their workday, whether it is to and from work or at a lunch break.

Walking maps of the routes are available at no cost at Downtown On the Go, 950 Pacific Ave., Suite 300, at many downtown businesses, or by contacting Meagan Kula, Downtown On the Go Coordinator, at (253) 682-1734 or dotg@tacomachamber.org. More information is available online here.
