From our friends at WABI Burien:

It’s Walk-n-Talk time this Sunday, Dec. 3!

Let’s head north from Burien Town Square and stroll through Chelsea Park. Whether rain or shine, we’ll smile and chat, just the same. This is a FREE activity and draws people of many ages. Just come chat with people you wouldn’t otherwise meet up with!

During past visits to the neighborhood, we found these scenic gems: Dottie Harper Park, the Burien Community Garden, white-painted tree trunks, Bird-House House, Stormwater Park, Green House, Purple House. What new things will we spot this time around?

  • Date: Sunday, December 3, 2017 (Yep. Rain or shine.)
  • Time: 2:00 meet-up. Walking starts at 2:15
  • Who: Walkers of every level and ability, plus four-legged friends
  • Place: Meet on the grassy knoll at Burien Town Square Park. 400 SW 152nd St.
  • Distance: About 2.5 miles, round trip. Mostly flat.
    Please print out a copy of the map (below) if you’d like one as we’re walking.

WABI-Rain Walk

See you with walking shoes on…

Intentions for Burien’s Walk-n-Talk:

  • “Encourage active living to support physical and mental health.” (Part of Burien’s new “Vision”.)
  • Initiate conversation between friends and neighbors, new and old.
  • Nurture the idea of our Town Square as the “living room” of Burien, our center and gathering place.
  • Create our own little “volksmarch“, in the European tradition.
  • Support our local cafés and restaurants on Sunday afternoons.

The Walk-n-Talks are enjoyed by folks from different communities coming together for conversation… a chance to talk to people one wouldn’t otherwise have a chance to chat with and get some exercise and fresh air at the same time. Walkers span the ages, including tiny folks (Burien’s Walkers of the Future), and four-legged friends. Many have become “regulars” enjoying the Walk-n-Talk each month.

“Getting out on two feet (or two wheels) is a chance to entertain your “Inner Explorer”, to discover visual and architectural details you might not otherwise see. One of the bonuses is the varied route. I don’t know about you, but when I’m in my car, I generally drive the same route every time. Bo-ring! When I’m walking or riding my bike, my curious nature is heightened and I travel roads I’ve never seen before (even though I grew up here in Burien).” – Maureen, WABI Burien President
