The next ‘Walk-n-Talk’ is set for this Sunday, Oct. 7, when Organizers say “let’s go explore our neighbor’s trails” at North SeaTac Park.
North SeaTac Park is located near the corner of S. 128th Street and Des Moines Memorial Drive, where Walkers-n-Talkers will begin their stroll – note that in past events participants have met at Burien Town Square – that is NOT the case this week.
North SeaTac Park amenities include: baseball/soccer/softball fields, open area, restrooms, playground equipment, picnic area, outdoor basketball, paved walking trails, community center, BMX track, disk golf, parking.
“On past Walk-n-Talks, we’ve walked within the City of Burien, and have generally started at Town Square,” reads an announcement. “But there are interesting places to check out in the neighboring communities as well, so we’ll consider them for our walking opportunities.”
Here are the details:
WHEN: Sunday October 7, 2012; meet at 2:00 p.m., start walking at 2:15 p.m.
WHERE: North SeaTac Park, parking lot at the corner of S. 128th St. and Des Moines Memorial Drive S. Meet on the grassy slope near the restrooms above the large parking lot at the north end of the park.
WHO: Walkers of every level and ability
ROUTE: We will walk on the paved trails that meander through the park. (See dotted lines on the maps below.) Total distance of 2-2.5 miles, depending on wishes of the walkers. Click on the map to see a larger view. Please print this out and bring it with you as a walking guide.
