From our friends at WABI Burien:

Love to walk?

Or maybe you’re new to walking and want to get started for fun, fresh air and exercise? Perhaps you’re new to Burien and want to meet people and get to know the area? There are many others around town that love to get their walking shoes on and take a stroll. Add companionship and conversation to your walk by joining one of the walking groups around Burien.

“I was new to the walking group yesterday. I thoroughly loved it and want to take part in many more. What a great walk to be my first one with you. I will go to the website to sign up for coming announcements. I just wanted to thank you for allowing me to participate. It was wonderful.” – Jan
