Last year I missed out on the First Annual Stairway Walks Day, but I did put it on calendar to make sure I'd be in town to participate this year. On February 8th, at 10:00 a.m. there will be 18 different stairway walks throughout the greater Seattle area, including Burien, and Bellevue.
In the 15 years that I've lived in Seattle, I've never actually explored the Arboretum. I'm going to take this opportunity to participate in the Olmstead Vision walk.
In the early 20th century, Seattle commissioned the Olmstead Brothers firm to design a park system for the city. This trio of splendid parks: Washington Park Arboretum, Interlaken Park, and Volunteer Park are a formative part of the legacy they left behind. We'll also see vibrant residential architecture that was built for a newly prospering middle class of this era.
Space is limited to 25 people per walk, so to secure a place. Follow the link below to find a walk in your neighborhood, or join me on the Olmstead Vision walk, but register ASAP to secure your spot.
