Shoreline Walks is a community walking program to help Shoreline adults stay active, meet new people (or connect with old friends) and feel safer and more confident exploring our city by foot. Walks explore neighborhoods, parks and trails offering great insight into some of the best walking routes in our City. Specifically designed for adults ages 50+ but open to all ages and abilities, each walk is led by a Volunteer Walk Leader and all walks are free to the public.
Join us on one of these great walks starting in April 2014. More walks will be added as the season goes on, so check back for the latest list of Shoreline Walks.
This 6 mile walk will take you from North Shoreline to South and back. Starting at the pool, we'll take the interurban trail to 145th St. and head back North on some city streets exploring a couple parks and stopping for some coffee along the way.
Get acquainted with some of the trails running through the forested haven of Shoreline's beautiful 80-acre Hamlin Park.
Visit the 4 parks in Richmond Beach while enjoying views of the mountains and the sound.
Let's meet up to walk around Paramount School Park and participate in the "Million Step Challenge" as a group.
A nice evening stroll around Twin Ponds Park with an extra loop around Parkwood School. Our walk leader will help us spot water fowl on the ponds.
Enjoy an easy late morning walk around North Shoreline and continue with a low impact workout of water walking at the Shoreline Pool. (pool walk is optional, bring swimsuit and money for pool admission fee.)
This short loop walk around North Shoreline starts at the Pool and heads north up to Ballinger Way. We'll then loop around and take the Interuban Trail back to the pool.
Stretch your legs after dinner with a walk around lovely green areas in the North City Neighborhood.

Fred Kent, the President of Project for Public Spaces, calls Placemaking “the thing that turns a neighborhood, street, or city from a place you can’t wait to get through to one you never want to leave.” If you are a Shoreline resident who longs to make your neighborhood memorable, wonderful place, this workshop is for you.
This fun and high-energy workshop includes a working potluck dinner, fascinating placemaking concepts, inspiring case studies, and ample time to share and process your ideas. If you are creative, passionate, or simply curious about improving the function of your local public realm with “lighter, quicker, cheaper” placemaking projects, we invite you to come to the workshop and collaborate with like-minded neighbors.
