Take a Step Towards Good Health
Lace up your walking shoes, bring family, friends and neighbors and join us on an hour-long walk on the 1st and 2nd Saturday mornings of each month, May through October! Whether you are new to Alameda or lived here for decades, this is a great way to begin a Saturday morning exploring our neighborhoods and discovering new areas of Alameda.
All walks begin at 9:00 a.m. and last approximately one hour. Where walks are longer, it will be noted and new walks are indicated. Look for the red Alameda Walks hats! While we love the furry pets, we prefer that they wait for you at home except on the designated pet walks.
