Rob Johnson & his Pooch ‘Romeo’ will lead 12th ‘Walk-n-Talk’ on Sunday, July 1
The 12th monthly Walk-n-Talk will be held, rain or shine, and led by frequent Walker Rob Johnson and his pooch Romeo, on Sunday, July 1st.
“This will complete our first full year of random folks gathering together, exploring neighborhoods around Burien on foot and carrying on conversations with people they might not otherwise have met,” reads an announcement on the WaBi website. “Rain or shine, chilly or bright, we will not be kept from our Walk-n-Talk! If we waited for the weather to make up its mind, we could wait a while.”
Johnson (and Romeo) volunteered to pick a route and lead the group, beginning and ending at the grassy knoll of Burien Town Square.
Walkers will circle east along SW/S. 152nd Street, past and around Highline High School and Moshier Field, as far as southbound Des Moines Memorial Drive, then back west along S./SW 156th Street, and north on 4th Ave. SW (see route map below).
Rob points out that this 2.25 mile route has sidewalks the whole way (!) and is mostly flat, so this is an ideal route for any folks with mobility issues or who are pushing baby strollers.

- WHERE: Meet on the grassy knoll at Burien Town Square
- DISTANCE: About 2.25 miles, round trip. Mostly flat. Sidewalks roundtrip
