‘Westward Ho!’ WABI Burien Walk-n-Talk is this Sunday, May 4
This Sunday, May 4, WABI Burien’s monthly Walk-n-Talk will wander some of the westward-facing hills of the Seahurst neighborhood of Burien.
Every month since August 2011, neighbors and Burien city visitors have gathered, walked and talked for fun, conversation and exercise. Come join the group! Chat with someone you wouldn’t otherwise have a chance to meet. Get out and stretch your legs. This is a FREE event and is enjoyable for all, including four-legged, furry friends.
Date: Sunday, May 4, 2013 (Rain or shine).
Time: Meet-up at 2:00. Walking starts at 2:15.
Place: Meet at the arch at Lake Burien Park, 1620 SW 149th Street, Burien WA 98166
Who: Open to all walkers. (Be aware that the route includes sloping areas and a more difficult, sloping section.)
Route: The first portion of this route is gently sloping. The second portion is steeper down and then back up and can be skipped by those that choose to. (See the map below.)
Begin at Lake Burien Park, walk north on 18th Ave. SW, west on SW 146th St. Keeping to the right, follow the loop around, heading north and west until you reach 25th Ave. SW. Head south, pass Eagle Landing Park, then continue east on SW 149th St.
At SW 149th St. either turn right and head down SW 150th St and do the one-way loop OR, if you choose not to do the steeper slope, you can continue along SW 149th St. back to Lake Burien Park.
Distance: About 2.4 miles round trip, partly flat/partly sloping/partly steep.
